U.S. Army Reserve



The 807th Medical Command (Deployment Support), is the largest medical command in the Army Reserve, consisting of 99 units located in 26 different states and nearly 10,000 Soldiers. It is one of only three 2-star deployable medical commands in the Army, responsible for managing all of the Army Reserve’s deployable field medical units from Midwest Ohio to California, providing general medical, surgical, dental, ambulance, behavioral health, preventive medicine, and veterinary support to unit and civilian populations.

The command conducts full-spectrum medical operations including medical surveillance activities to assist in evaluating conditions affecting the health of the force, such as conducting epidemiological investigations and environmental analyses to assist in assessing medical threats.

Aligned to support Southern Command (South and Central America), the 807th MCDS also conducts military and humanitarian operations in Africa, Asia, and Europe.The unit has also provided needed medical, dental, optical, and veterinary care to U.S. citizens in locations such as Alaska, North Carolina, and Wyoming, as well as serving nations such as Panama, Honduras, and Belize.

These training opportunities allow Army Reserve Soldiers to hone skills in jobs that bring value back home.

The 807th MCDS’s lineage began Oct. 27, 1944, when it was constituted in the Army of the United States as the 807th Medical Service Detachment. Activated in England, the 807th has reorganized and re-designated several times.

The distinctive unit insignia was originally approved for the 807th Medical Brigade, March 25, 1977. It was re-designated as the 807th Medical Command (Direct Support) effective Sept. 17, 2002.
