Army Reserve Medical Command Soldiers from the 7243rd Medical Support Unit participated in Ultimate Caduceus 2023 at Joint Base Lewis McChord, Washington from March 4 to March 18, 2023. Ultimate Caduceus is a Transportation Command-led medical exercise wherein units from the Air Force, Army, National Disaster Medical System and local medical agencies work together to shuttle and provide care for Soldiers coming from overseas. The exercise ensures that military units will be prepared for a mass influx of casualties and incorporates non-military medical organizations in the event as their military counterparts become overwhelmed. The 7243rd used this exercise to serve as annual training, an opportunity to learn how to operate in a joint environment, and as a look at how these operations can be orchestrated from planning to execution.

Bill Young Armed Forces Reserve Center in Pinellas Park, Florida on March 06, 2024. The training prepares Soldiers to apply humanitarian service skills in Defense Support of Civil Authorities (DSCA) based missions in areas affected by natural disasters. Participants learn how to conduct aid as part of a joint task force, as well as how all the functions they would aid in from the team's formation to its dissolution. One of the training directors, Eric James, a Humanitarian Assistance Advisor to the Military, spoke in depth about the importance of this training for Army medical professionals. 

“I think it's important to know that this humanitarian assistance and disaster relief is a joint

mission,” he said “That it's part of what the DOD does. That there's a lead federal agency that is

This type of training is crucial for medical professionals in that when disasters inevitably happen they are ready to deploy and provide necessary care as part of a multifaceted team, saving lives with maximum efficiency.
