ARMEDCOM: changing lives; building readiness
Maj. Gen. Mary Link, commanding general for Army Reserve Medical Command, recognizes optometrist, Capt. Trisha Roberts, for her hard work and commitment to providing care to residents at Fred and Anita Bruni Community Center located in Laredo, Texas. Roberts is assigned to the 7225th Medical Support Unit located in Greenville, South Carolina, and 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 & readiness requirements for Army Reserve service members while integrating them as a joint and whole-of-society team to serve our American citizens.
