This year is noteworthy as it marks the 50th anniversary of the BSC.
The BSC's roots date back to 1917, when the Sanitary Corps was established to combat infectious diseases. The Army Medical Administrative Corps followed three years later. In 1949, the Air Force Medical Service was officially established. The Air Force Medical Service (AFMS) continued to expand over the next two decades and in 1965, the BSC was born.
