After that, he trained at William Beaumont Army Medical Center and Thomason Hospital in El Paso, during which time he was promoted to Major. He spent the next 4 years in Heidelberg, Germany as a general orthopedic surgeon and has also served in the Balkans, Bosnia, Croatia, and Kosovo.
After being promoted to Lieutenant Colonel, Dr. Handy completed a 1-year fellowship in knee and hip replacement surgery and went on to teach orthopedic residents at Madigan Army Medical Center in Washington. While in Washington, he commanded the 102nd Forward Surgical Team, with which he was later deployed to Kandahar, Afghanistan. After a quarter century of service, he retired in October 2017.
