Malone’s medical training helped troops

MADISON – Captain Robert Malone began his military training at University of Alabama in the ROTC program.

In 1989, he attended ROTC Basic Training at Fort Knox, Ky. and then Airborne School at Fort Benning, Ga. He also completed ROTC Advanced Camp at Fort Lewis, Wash. with a follow-up camp for Nurse Corp at Fort Riley, Kan.

Commissioned in 1992, Malone finished Officer Basic Course at Fort Sam Houston, Texas.

His first duty assignment was Wurzburg, Germany at 67 Combat Support Hospital, finishing off with Operation Joint Endeavor in support of Bosnia and Herzegovina. He returned to Fort Sam Houston for follow-up Intensive Care Unit School.

For his second duty, Malone reported to Fort Gordon at Dwight David Eisenhower Army Medical Center in Medical ICU and Cardiac Cath Lab. He attended Head Nurse Course.

Back to Fort Sam Houston, he completed Officer Advanced Course. Malone was assigned to Fort Stewart at Winn Army Hospital in ICU and Post-Anesthesia Care Unit. Malone exited the U.S. Army at Fort Stewart in 2001 as Captain in Nurse Corp.

Malone earned a bachelor’s degree at University of North Alabama and a master’s degree in physical therapy from University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2003. “Currently, I am the physical therapist and owner for Lystra Physical Therapy in Madison,” he said.

A Decatur native, Malone returned to the Madison area when his wife Frescia from Lima, Peru started working at Adtran, and he completed physical therapy school. Frescia Malone, an electrical engineering graduate of Auburn University, now home-schools their children — Preston, 14; Ethan, 12; and Isabella, 7.

Robert Malone participates with Alabama Physical Therapy Association and Gateway BNI group. The Malones attend Madison Church of Christ.

His hobbies are golf and scuba diving, along with motorcycle riding.

“I have a great interest in advancing my physical therapy with manual skills and direct one-on-one care,” he said. “With a combination of registered nursing and physical therapy skills, I can see patients in a multifaceted way that concludes with excellent results.”
