The mission of the U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) Deputy Chief of Staff for Army Recovery Care Program(DCS, ARCP) is to develop, coordinate and integrate the Army's Recovery Care Program (ARCP) for wounded, ill and injured Soldiers, Veterans and their Families or Caregivers to promote success in the force or civilian life. ARCP serves an essential role, not only in managing the care and recovery of Soldiers evacuated from theater, but also those preparing to deploy and those who have returned from combat that require complex care management to cope with the effects of war and multiple deployments. ARCP works to ensure everything possible is done to enable Soldiers to return to duty. ARCP also plays an important role in ensuring Reserve Component Soldiers receive the care they require prior to and after deployment to remain mission ready.

Do you know the ARCP collaborates with the Army Medical Readiness Assistance Program Ombudsman Program?

Ombudsmen are trained information and referral resources located at all SRU locations who serve as a vital communication link between the command and Soldiers and family members.

“There is no greater role for me as a retired senior Non-commissioned officer than to continue serving Soldiers and military family members in a meaningful way, especially our ARCP population”. – Don Walker, MEDCOM ombudsman

Equine Therapy: Equine Therapy helps Soldier find connection and simplicity
Equine therapy is not new to the military community. It is an effective way to reduce post-traumatic stress according to 2017 studies conducted by the University of Missouri and Baylor University. Both studies found that a horse’s ability to identify threats helps it to mirror anxiety back to the veteran, helping the veteran learn to manage their anxiety.

Sgt. Laura Laird: Mind over matter

During these challenging times, now more than ever is the time to reevaluate what’s important in our lives and how we live it. Check out this great story of one of our own, Sgt. Laura Laird: Mind over matter her motto for life. http://ow.ly/56cS50z6s9u
“Life is what you make it, if you’re not happy then change it. You should not have any regrets. Life is too short and shorter for some than others. Do not leave anything on the table and have no regrets at the end of the day,” Laird said.

Hi Everyone, I wanted to share this with you. I’m a retired medic and I’m trying to get this second career as an actor started out here in Atlanta. A music video I was in was recently released and we’re trying to get the message out. A couple of thing to know. My performance in this video is dedicated to the memory of Sgt John Allen (KIA 17mar2007). I was Sgt Allen’s first line supervisor while stationed at Ft. Bliss with 2-12 Cav. Just before one of the first missions I went on in Iraq (which was scheduled to last 80hours straight). It was incredibly cold and Bradley’s can feen like an icebox when it’s cold. John asked me if I had a gator neck. I told him I didn’t... so he gave me his since he wasn’t going on any missions yet. I had great soldiers. They all cared about me and John was no different. During “oak tree” sessions he often talked about his approach to life. I got as much out of these talks that I hope he did. ... but his mentality was always one of ... you might as well go for it, who cares if you fail at least you can say you didn’t sit on the sidelines. So 4 years ago i got invited to be on the set of a movie a friend was doing and my first thought was of John. From there I started doing more work as an extra in tv and movies and I carry that gator neck I got from John on every set as a reminder to live a life that those that gave all would be proud and to NOT SIT ON THE SIDELINE. I’m very proud of the video and trying to promote the artist, Patrick Kelly, as much as myself. He was inspired by watching a family member struggle with transitioning from combat to civilian life. I would be extremely grateful if you would give it a listen and share. THANK YOU!!! It means more than you know. #memorialday
