After only a brief period of reserve commission CAPT Malloy decided to accession to active duty. In August, 2001 he commenced his active duty service at National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. Working in the Main Operating Room it was realized despite his junior rank that the experience brought from the civilian sector enabled him to become team leader for Neurosurgery.

A successful tour highlight was the completion of first reconstructive total joint procedures to be performed in several years and his selection as Nurse of the Year for 2008.

After a successful OCONUS tour, CAPT Malloy was assigned to Fleet Surgical Team Six, Little Creek, VA in August 2007. Deployments on the USS Bataan (LHD-5) and covert missions on the USS Mesa Verde (LPD-19) culminated in him being awarded the Surface Warfare Medical Department Officer (SWMDO) designator.
Following the FST assignment, CAPT Malloy was assigned to the Main Operating Room at Naval Medical Center, Portsmouth, VA in August 2009. Assuming staff nurse responsibilities he was moved into Team Leader, Neurosurgery and then selected as Division Officer representing 6 surgical disciplines. In 2011 he deployed to Tarin Kowt, Afghanistan as the Perioperative Nurse and Senior Nursing Officer of the Role 2E Hospital.
