Daines Honors Montanan of the Week: Dr. Jonathan L. Bingham of Cascade County

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines recognized Dr. Jonathan L. Bingham of Cascade County for his tremendous impact on his community, the state of Montana, and our nation.

Through his “Montanan of the Week” initiative, Daines each week will highlight a Montanan by submitting a statement of recognition in the official Congressional Record, the document that reflects the official proceedings of Congress.

Daines welcomes anyone to nominate fellow Montanans for Daines’ “Montanan of the Week” program by calling Daines’ office at 202-224-2651 or by filling out the contact form on Daines’ website: HERE.

The following is a statement submitted to the Congressional Record:

Mr. DAINES. Mr. President, this week, I have the distinct honor of recognizing Dr. Jonathan L. Bingham for his service in providing quality dermatologic surgery care to the folks in Great Falls and his military service in the Montana Air National Guard.

Dr. Bingham graduated from the United States Naval Academy. Following the Naval Academy, he went on to medical school at Pennsylvania State University and the Air War College. Dr. Bingham then served with distinction as a flight surgeon and Mohs Surgeon-Dermatologist in the United States Navy.

Throughout the course of his career he has served his country and his fellow citizens with great honor. During his time in the Navy he deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom as a flight surgeon and he also served as Faculty Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon at the National Naval Medical Center and the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to support the White House Medical Unit and the Office of the Attending Physician.

In Great Falls, Dr. Bingham is one of the leading experts on dermatologic care. Despite his successful career as a civilian and service member, Dr. Bingham continues his service to our country in the Air National Guard.

Dr. Bingham is an inspiration to any young Montanans seeking to live out a life in service to his or her country. I congratulate Dr. Bingham for his exemplary record of excellence and I thank him for his continued service to the people of Montana and our country.
