Abstract:

The Maryland Defense Forces MDDFs 10th Medical Regiment 10MEDRGT is arguably the most active state defense force SDF medical command in the nation and is clearly the most creative in charting new avenues of service to both civilian and military authorities in its home state of Maryland and outside at the request of and in support of the Maryland National Guard MDNG. Perhaps the most significant of these is the support that the 10th Medical Regiment often referred to herein as the 10th provides to soldiers and airmen of the MDNG by assuming, on a regular basis, the lead provider role in the Department of Defense DoD Post-Deployment Health Reassessment Program PDHRA. This Federally mandated force health protection initiative is intended to enhance the deployment-related continuum of care by helping soldiers reveal both blatant and latent chronic mental and physical health problems triggered during the soldiers prior deployment in one of the worlds hot spots. Success in this undertaking has led the MDNG to request similar assistance from the 10MEDRGT in their Family Assistance Soldier Reintegration Program, Periodic Health Assessment Program, and Soldier Readiness Program for mobilization.
