In 2002, the United States Secretary of the Navy conferred the Legion of Merit Award upon Martin for his pivotal role in the five-month investigation of the 2001 anthrax attacks as well as his role as the on-site infectious disease physician on Capitol Hill during the attacks and the treatment of the staff of Senator Tom Daschle in the aftermath of the attacks.

In 2003, Martin led the military medical team that examined and cared for the United States Marines ill with malaria contracted while spending two weeks ashore in Liberia.

Famous quotes containing the word biography:

    The best part of a writer’s biography is not the record of his adventures but the story of his style.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    As we approached the log house,... the projecting ends of the logs lapping over each other irregularly several feet at the corners gave it a very rich and picturesque look, far removed from the meanness of weather-boards. It was a very spacious, low building, about eighty feet long, with many large apartments ... a style of architecture not described by Vitruvius, I suspect, though possibly hinted at in the biography of Orpheus.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    There never was a good biography of a good novelist. There couldn’t be. He is too many people, if he’s any good.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)
