3d Medical Command Deployment Support Desert Medics

3d MCDS answers the nation's call with sending several Urban Augmentation Medical Task Forces (UAMTF) to assist FEMA with COVID-19 support efforts.

"Never in the history of the United States military has medical been the warfighter, but we are the warfighter," says 3d MCDS Commanding General Maj. Gen. Joe Robinson. "We are the tip of the spear."

Soldiers within the 3d MCDS were mobilized within one week and will be sent to various areas as apart of a non-doctrinal unit, working within uncertain, complex and ambiguous environments.

In the United States, the third Friday in September honors National POW/MIA Recognition Day.

Each year since 1989, a presidential proclamation brings the nation together to remember and honor the members of the Armed Forces who remain missing in action or are prisoners of war. The day serves as a call to action, reminding the nation to rededicate our efforts. We’re responsible for bringing our patriots home and for caring for our military families awaiting word of their loved ones.

The POW/MIA Flag is flown this day over significant national landmarks and government buildings across the country. Not only do the Capitol, the White House, and the Korean and Vietnam Veterans Memorials fly the flag, but so do the offices of the secretaries of State, Defense and Veterans Affairs, and of the Selective Service System. Additionally, the POW/MIA Flag flies on the grounds or in the lobbies of every major military installation, post office, and all VA Medical Centers and national cemeteries.

August 7, 2019 is National Purple Heart Day!

Purple Heart is awarded to members of the armed forces of the U.S. who are wounded by an instrument of war in the hands of the enemy and posthumously to the next of kin in the name of those who are killed in action or die of wounds received in action. It is specifically a combat decoration.

Today, we honor those brave members of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, USA!

PURPLE HEART DAY

Purple Heart Day on August 7 commemorates the creation of the oldest American military decoration for military merit. The Purple Heart honors the men and women who are of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. During the American Revolutionary War, the Badge for Military Merit decorated six known soldiers.
General George Washington created the Badge of Merit in 1782. The honor was to be presented to soldiers for “any singularly meritorious action.” Its design included a purple, heart-shaped piece of silk bound with a thin edge of silver. Across the face, the word Merit was embroidered in silver. While the badge symbolized the courage and devotion of an American Patriot, no one knows who designed the award.

Until Washington’s 200th birthday, the Purple Heart persisted as a Revolutionary War footnote. Through the efforts of General Douglas MacArthur, the U.S. War Department created the Order of the Purple Heart. Today the medal bears a bust of George Washington and his coat of arms.

While an accurate and complete list of names no longer exists, National Geographic recently estimated that nearly 1.9 million Purple Hearts have been awarded since its creation. It’s the oldest U.S. military honor still bestowed upon service members today.

Today, the Purple Heart is awarded to members of the armed forces of the U.S. who are wounded by an instrument of war in the hands of the enemy and posthumously to the next of kin in the name of those who are killed in action or die of wounds received in action. It is specifically a combat decoration.

June 20 is National American Eagle Day! This day is set aside to honor our national symbol, raise awareness for protecting the Bald Eagle, assist in the recovery of their natural environments and take part in educational outreach.
The Bald Eagle is both the national bird and the national animal of the United States of America and appears on its Seal.

QUICK FACTS:
1. A fully grown female Bald Eagle has a wingspan of 2 meters (7 feet) and weighs 3 to 7 kilograms (7 to 15 pounds). The males are slightly smaller. They mate for life and live between 20-30 years.
2. The name “Bald Eagle” derives from an older meaning of “white headed” as the bird is actually not bald. The adult eagle is mainly brown with a white head and tail.

Want to celebrate National American Eagle Day? What better way than by taking the Family to see these majestic raptors in their natural habitats at one of the more than 2,000 national parks, wildlife refuges, national forests, and other federal recreational areas?

Active Reservists can obtain a FREE Annual Pass for free admission at sites that charge entrance or standard amenity fees for one full year from the month obtained (through last day of that month). This pass allows pass owner and accompanying passengers in a single, private, non-commercial vehicle to enter federally operated recreation sites across the country.

At sites where per person entrance fees are charged, the pass covers the pass owner and three (3) accompanying adults age 16 and older. No entry fee charged for children 15 and under.

General information

The first event, which take place before the deployment for the Soldiers and family members, and then during the deployment for the family members. This phase of the program prepares the Soldier and family for the deployment and then assists the family members while the unit is overseas. When the unit returns, the four Regional Support Commands (RSCs) in the Army Reserve host the post-deployment phase. This phase consists of events that occur in large cities in resort style hotels, all around the nation. The post-deployment focus is on the challenges faced by the Soldiers and families on reintegration and getting back to "normal." Post-deployment events for the Army Reserve also host service members from other branches of the service and their family members, just as Army Reserve Soldiers and family members may attend YR events hosted by the other services. Army Reserve post-deployment YR events are held in cities such as Anaheim, Atlantic City, Boston, Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Denver, Hershey, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Niagara Falls, Orlando, Pocono (PA) and St. Louis. Registration to attend Yellow Ribbon events is now automated and easily accomplished through the Dept of Defense Yellow Ribbon Program website, www.yellowribbonevents.org. The Army Reserve has contracted Yellow Ribbon specialists at each major Operational and Functional Command headquarters and at each of the RSCs to assist the unit commanders in implementing and running the program, and to assist Soldiers and family members in getting the most out of the program.
