The Name Behind Operation Hammond

William Alexander Hammond was an American neurologist and the 11th Surgeon General of the U.S. Army. He is regarded as the father of pre-hospital emergency medicine.

He founded the first military hospital and ambulances in the United States as well as the American Neurological Association.

How Operation Hammond was Formed

Operation Hammond was formed by a group of dedicated convention staffers from various anime and science fiction conventions. Individuals who attend anime, sci-fi and pop culture conventions have unique medical and social needs. Operation Hammond is unique in that, hitherto no one group has formed to effectively deal with the full medical and social needs of the pop culture community. We are the only non-profit First Aid Charity operating at the American Red Cross First Aid level for the nerd and pop culture community. Click here to learn more.
