Miamian serves in Navy as clinical social worker

Lt. Louis Sanchez, from Miami, has served as a clinical social worker in the U.S. Navy for five years. He is deployed on the USS Bataan (LHD 5), the flagship of the Bataan Amphibious Ready Group (BATARG).

“I joined the Navy because I wanted to serve my country and assist those service members returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder,” Lt. Sanchez said. “I enjoy working side by side with the corpsmen, nurses, and medical providers in a multidisciplinary team approach for the overall well being of our service members.”

As the only clinical social worker serving in the BATARG, Sanchez supports more than 4,200 sailors and marines.
