Certificate for Affiliation with the Army Medical Department Regiment1. The U.S. Army Regimental System was established in 1981 to provide each Soldier and civilian with a continuous identification with a single regiment. The purpose of the system is to establish a method that would "enhance combat effectiveness through a framework that provides the opportunity for affiliation, develops loyalty and commitment, fosters an extended sense of belonging, improves unit esprit, and institutionalizes the war fighting ethos".

2. The intent and spirit of the Regimental System is to provide Soldiers and civilians with the opportunity for affiliation with a particular unit. The Surgeon General, United States Army, extends formal affiliation to all AMEDD Soldiers and civilians with the U.S. Army Medical Department Regiment - a regiment whose tradition of caring is distinguished by more than 200 years of proud and faithful service to Soldiers, the United States Army, and the United States of America. All initial entry training Military Occupational Specialty producing courses and the Officer Basic Course formally affiliate Soldiers during their rites of passage or graduation ceremonies.

3. AMEDD civilian employees may elect to affiliate. It is the policy of the OTSG/MEDCOM to afford all civilian employees the opportunity to elect affiliation with the AMEDD Regiment.  It is also the policy of the OTSG/MEDCOM that commanders will encourage, support, and promote their civilians to become part of this rich tradition and history.  Commanders will establish internal processes and procedures to implement the AMEDD Regimental Program for civilian employees and ensure widest dissemination of this opportunity for existing AMEDD civilians to become affiliated with the Regiment and develop a process to offer membership in the Regiment to newly hired civilians.  Commanders will present AMEDD Regimental affiliation certificates in appropriate settings and ceremonies to recognize newly affiliated civilians.

4. Requests for civilian affiliation will be by memorandum signed by the Commander or his designated representative.  An example may be viewed here.  Requests will be sent via electronic mail to   

Regimental Administrative Officer
