It's not often that things go just right in all things we try to accomplish. In the NAAMTA beginning it was imperative to find the right people to help push this accredition idea along. I thought if we could only find some help with some well placed nationally recognized individual it would go a long way in establishing our credibility. In my search for the right person, it seemed all roads led to Dr. David R.Boyd. The first National EMS Director appointed by President Gerald Ford..if I could only persuade him to join our team and get that wise wisdom from him it would be a win for NAAMTA. After about 6 Months of discussions Dr. Boyd agreed to come on board and advise us using his influence and experience. He is wise and passionate about EMS no matter where we go he stops people and asks them what they know..invaribly he will dig out a connection and he then has a friend for life. Dr. Boyd has taught we a great deal about the early days of Trauma and the national organization of all trauma centers in the U.S. and abroad. His influence and his foot print have a global effect. Dr, Boyd has been with us for 3 years..he has made a huge impact on our company and has taken us to the next level. Dr, Boyd now has a passion to finish his book and catalog his countless contributions to National trauma and the EMS world. We will miss him and his "no none sense" approach to business and life. We thank him and wish him well in his next projects. His advice has helped me personally and I believe I have fostered a friend. Again I think you !! Griff
