ARMEDCOM: changing lives; building readiness
Maj. Jennifer Meadows, an optometrist assigned to 7226th Medical Support Unit located in Fort Jackson, South Carolina, works with local residents at El Cenizo community center. Meadows is one of approximately 125 U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers who are working in partnership with the Texas A&M Colonias program to provide medical care to Webb County’s under-served Colonias population. Services provided by Army Reserve personnel are done through the Department of Defense’s Innovative Readiness Training, a civil-military program that builds mutually beneficial partnerships between U.S. communities and the DoD. The missions selected meet training and readiness requirements for Army Reserve service members while integrating them as a joint and whole-of-society team to serve our American citizens.
