Fort Drum Medical Activity

Important Update:

As of Jan. 1, 2019, Fort Drum MEDDAC beneficiaries receiving care with our network providers will no longer be referred to network specialists with the Physicians and Allied Health Professionals of the Samaritan Medical Practice, P.C. This will impact new or changed referrals only. Patients with ongoing referrals within the Samaritan network will still see their current specialist until their approved course of care is completed unless a new referral or a change in referral is required. New referrals will still be processed with other network providers as needed.

We understand the frustration involved with changing specialty providers and ask our beneficiaries to remain patient as Fort Drum MEDDAC and Humana Military work to solidify participating partnerships with healthcare providers in the area. Humana Military is currently working on developing relationships with local and surrounding area providers to help fill the gap locally through partnerships.

The specialties impacted at this time are ENT, gastroenterology, hematology/oncology, pulmonary, cardiothoracic surgery, vascular surgery, plastic surgery, orthopedic surgery, radiation oncology, general surgery and A Woman’s Perspective OB/GYN. This will not affect patients being seen by Fort Drum MEDDAC OB/GYN located at Samaritan. Beneficiaries can continue to visit the Samaritan emergency room and urgent care facilities as they are not affected. We will continue to update you as changes occur.

Friends and Family of Cohort Company,

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Afghanistan!

Dear Friends and Family of the Golden Dragons,

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Afghanistan.

We are pleased to share with you our first edition of the Golden Dragon Gazette.

Right of the Line!

Family and friends of Charlie Company, 2-14 IN, 2-10BCT

I am sure most of you have heard by now, but no longer are we Rock Company - we are Cohort! Cohort by definition, was the base formation of the Roman Legions, developed and chosen by the best Soldiers available and trained to be the most feared and lethal Soldiers in the known world. The Cohorts that made up the Roman Legions were deployed across Europe, Africa, the Mediterranean, and their legacy lives still today.

Our Soldiers today represent the spirit and strength of the Cohorts of bygone eras. We are the best Army on Earth, because we have the best Soldiers on Earth. We stand ready to deploy to the far edge of the globe, stand on the edge of the frontier of civilization and defend the freedoms and people back home. We are proud to do what we do, we are proud of what we defend, and we are proud of who we are - we are Cohort!

As I, and the Cohorts return to our page to include our family and friends in current updates, please observe our "Sneak Peak" logo as our Profile Picture - a bald eagle, wings spread in confidence with red/white alternating stripes; a blue shield with white stars upon his breast; crossed rifles and bayonet cluched in its talons; an oakleaf wreath extending from the base, and the word PARABELLUM shown proudly above. Parabellum is Latin for "Prepare for War" , a piece of a famous Roman quote; "Si vis pacem, parabellum" - translated as "if you desire peace, prepare for war." In light of our lineage, and in light of our current mission set and what we are called upon to perform, we feel this inspires and motivates our team. We are always ready, and we will always stay Prepared for War!

We thank the Cohort Family and all our friends during our deployment, and during this holiday season, know that we are not here alone. Our thoughts and memories of our families safe at home keep us motivated and proud to do what we do. Lastly, know that your Soldiers are professional, lethal, and are as safe as we can be!

Happy Holidays, Happy New Year, and have a wonderful Christmas!

Respectfully,
CPT Ryan Hunt

General information

2-14 IN Welcome Letter: Incoming 2-14 IN Soldiers, Welcome to the 2nd Battalion, 14th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, and the 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry). You are joining one of the most versatile and historic units in the modern army. We stand ready to deploy worldwide in support of full spectrum operations. Our unit has a phenomenal reputation as proficient warriors and as standard setters in all areas. We are disciplined, physically fit, and mentally tough, and we execute the basics to standard. The 14th Infantry Regiment formed in August 1861, at Fort Turnbell, CT. During the Civil War, our unit participated in every major campaign in Virginia. At the war’s end, the Regimental Commander asked General Meade, commander of the Army of the Potomac, where the regiment should be positioned for the final review. He answered, “The Fourteenth has always been to the front of the battle and deserves the place of honor… TAKE THE RIGHT OF THE LINE!” This became our regimental motto. In July of 1900, our unit faced the great challenge of overcoming the walls of Peking. The commander, COL Daggett, gazed up and wondered aloud if it was possible to climb up the wall. Calvin P. Titus, a bugler from E Co, stepped forward and said “I’ll try sir”. Titus was the first to scale the wall, inspiring others to follow his bold lead. When the Chinese surrendered, the 14th Regiment acquired the nickname the “Golden Dragons.” Since 2001, 2-14 Infantry has deployed four times to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Your assignment to The Golden Dragons will be challenging and will prove both professionally and personally rewarding. Upstate New York and the North Country offer exciting and interesting things for both single Soldiers and Families. You will receive a welcome packet with information about the Battalion, Fort Drum, and the local area. If you desire a sponsor, please call the point of contact listed below. Again, welcome! We look forward to serving with you at the RIGHT OF THE LINE! The enlisted point of contact for this letter is S1 NCOIC, SSG Terry at (315) 772-8982. The officer point of contact for this letter is S1 OIC, CPT Thompson, at (315) 772-7801. Sincerely, CARL A. ASHMEAD CSM, USA SEAN C. BERNABE LTC, IN Commanding --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Unit History 2-14IN “Golden Dragons” The 14th Infantry Regiment formed in August 1861, at Fort Trumbull, CT. During the Civil War, they participated in every major campaign in Virginia. At the war’s end, the Regimental Commander asked General Meade, commander of the Army of the Potomac, where the regiment should be positioned for the final review. He answered, “The Fourteenth has always been to the front of the battle and deserves the place of honor… TAKE THE RIGHT OF THE LINE!” This became the motto. After fighting the Indians in Arizona, Montana and Wyoming, the 14th Regiment moved to Vancouver Barracks, Washington until 1898. The War with Spain required the Regiment to deploy to the Pacific to seize Spanish possessions there. On the way to the Philippines, the 14th captured the island of Guam and arrived at Manila in time to take part in the final assault on the capital. On 8 July 1900, Chinese nationalists revolted and besieged the embassies of the U.S. and other European nations in Peking. The regiment moved to the rescue and led the way over the walls of the capital. When the Chinese surrendered, the 14th Regiment acquired the nickname the “Golden Dragons.” Revolution in Mexico required the 14th Regiment to move to Douglas, AZ in 1916. These duties prevented the Regiment from completing its preparations for deployment to France during World War I and instead deployed to the Panama Canal. By 1943, the Regiment returned to the U.S. to train for operations in Europe against the Germans. The Regiment landed in France in January 1945 and reached the fighting front in March. It participated in campaigns to break the Siegfried Line, The Rhine River, and the drive across Central Germany and Austria. The 14th deactivated after the war at Ft. Carson, Colorado in 1948. On 1 August 1951, the 14th Regiment transferred to the 25th Infantry Division in Korea. During the Korean War, the “Golden Dragons” acquitted themselves in small unit actions in Chorwon and on Heartbreak Ridge. After the cease-fire, the Regiment returned with the 25th Infantry Division to Schofield Barracks, Hawaii. The 14th Regiment again saw conflict in Vietnam in 1966. The Second Battalion of the Fourteenth Regiment fought with the 25th Infantry Division through Tet in April in 1968, the battle of Tay Nihn, and Cambodian incursions in 1970. By December 1970, the 2nd Battalion returned to Hawaii and deactivated on 5 June 1972. On 19 December 1985, the 2nd Battalion of the 14th Infantry Regiment reactivated at Ft. Benning, GA as the Light Infantry COHORT Battalion in the 10th Mountain Division. On 4 November 1988, the 2nd Battalion, fourteenth Infantry Regiment relocated at Ft. Drum, New York. The “Golden Dragons” have also participated in operational deployments to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; Hurricane Andrew relief in Homestead, FL; Operation Restore Hope in Mogadishu, Somalia; Operation Uphold Democracy in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti; Operation Joint Guardian in Slavonski Brod, Croatia and Tuzla, Bosnia; Kosovo rotation 3B, and Operations Iraqi Freedom 1, 2.5, and 4. The 2-14 “Golden Dragons” answered the call for OIF-1 in March of 2003. Operating in northern and western Iraq, 2-14 IN conducted operations in conjunction with Special Forces groups providing needed combat power to ensure the success of numerous special operations missions. 2-14 IN seized key targets, facilitated the transfer of high value enemy personnel, and secured numerous special operations forward operating bases. The “Golden Dragons” redeployed the majority of the battalion in July of 2003, however C Company was needed to continue operations with Special Forces through March of 2004. The “Golden Dragons” accomplished historically-significant operations in Western Baghdad, crippling the anti-Iraqi insurgency in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom 2.5 from June 2004 to June 2005. During the first four months of operations in Southern Baghdad TF 2-14 decisively cleared three Corps MSRs of enemy activity, ensuring an unimpeded flow of needed logistical convoys. TF 2-14 also prevented virtually all mortar and rocket attacks on the Baghdad International Airport, enabling the start of the first regular air service and commerce to Baghdad since the start of the war. In November of 2004 TF 2-14 assumed responsibility for the notorious suburb of Abu Ghraib. By the time the “Golden Dragons” redeployed in June of 2005 enemy activity in Abu Ghraib was greatly mitigated, resulting in two nearby Corps MSRs secured for convoy traffic, and the Baghdad Airport Complex being virtually free of mortar and rocket attacks. The 2-14 “Golden Dragons” again answered the call of duty during OIF 06-08 between August 2006 and November 2007, this time taking on the infamous Shakriyah “Triangle of Death” to the south and west of Baghdad proper. The Battalion conducted a daring nighttime assault to capture the Yusifyah Thermal Power Plant, a looming structure on the edge of the Euphrates River long known to be an insurgent safe haven, during the first months of the deployment. Today this once-feared structure of steel and concrete is called Camp Dragon, and serves as an integral Base of Operations for forward deployed soldiers and their units. Also during OIF 06-08, TF 2-14 conducted Combat Riverine Operations for the first time since the Vietnam War, enabling Golden Dragon soldiers to move with impunity across the Euphrates River and close with insurgents nestled in the villages on its western banks. In the closing months of the deployment, TF 2-14 was at the forefront of the Commando Brigade’s “Concerned Citizens” initiative, which garnered international attention for its successful attempts to reconcile former insurgents back into the Iraqi Security Forces. In the Golden Dragon Area of Operations alone, over 6,000 local tribesmen were enrolled in the program, given identification cards, and put to work defending their homes and families against Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQIZ) terrorists. The drop-off in violence during the last three months of the deployment was remarkable, and speaks volumes to both the quality of the Brigade initiative and the character of the soldiers who carried it out. By accomplishing all its assigned missions TF 2-14 facilitated the continued transformation of Iraq into a free and democratic country. 2nd Battalion 14th Infantry Regiment deployed yet again with 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division (LI) to the greater Baghdad area in support of OIF 09-10 on 15 October 2009. Occupying Joint Security Stations (JSS), 2-14IN set the standard in forging a positive partnership with the Iraqi Security Forces and left a lasting impression of friendship to the Iraqi people. 2-14 IN alongside the 4-1 / 8-2 Federal Police and 43-11 Iraqi Army conducted over 1300 partnered patrols, securing the largest cache in the Baghdad area for OIF 09-10. The joint units teamed up in training events at the local JSSs to strengthen bonds and establish SOPs for combined operations. Task Force Dragon assisted in logistical and quick reaction force operations in support of pre elections and elections in early March 2010. Soldiers assisted the Iraqi Federal Police and Army in enhancing the force protection and security of polling sites and stood ready to roll out in the event of a MASCAL incident as part of a consequence management package. The majority of operations included Humanitarian Aid in the form of clothing, school supplies, and home water purifiers. 2-14IN worked with Local contractors and the Federal Police to begin a Flex Maintenance Worker Program that focused on neighborhood cleanup. Isolated projects included opening 3 water treatment plants and developing the Gates of Baghdad program that improved the overall security and safety of local roads by lighting the roads. Soldiers from the Golden Dragons were among the first to transfer control of Joint Security Stations to the Iraqi Federal Police in the 9 Nissan / New Baghdad area, closing a total of 4 in three months. After leaving 9 Nissan and the New Baghdad area in early May, the Golden Dragon were called on to assist 1-3 Advice and Assist Brigade to strengthen ties with the 23-17 and 25-17 Iraqi Army. This new mission set was conducted simultaneously while acting as the Division Reserve and was conducted south of Baghdad in an area formally occupied by 2-14, known as the “Triangle of Death”. There the Golden Dragons conducted over 20 mixed Humanitarian Aid Projects and Combined Medical Engagements, treating over 1500 local citizens. Citizens said that they felt much safer in the area, long held by terrorists, and were proud to see Iraqis taking the lead in their towns to quell the violence. 2-14 redeployed to FT Drum on 1 August 2010. The “Golden Dragons” continue to hold the place they have held since 1861, at the RIGHT OF THE LINE!
