Army Medicine Mission and Vision

2018 Army Medicine Campaign Plan


The U.S. Army Medical Department (AMEDD) was formed on 27 July, 1775, when the Continental Congress authorized a Medical Service for an army of 20,000 men. It created the Hospital Department and named Dr. Benjamin Church of Boston as Director General and Chief Physician. Numerous times over the course of the Army's history, reorganization occurred to keep up with current tactics. As a result, however, some Army units lost their identity- their history-their lineage. This loss did not go unnoticed and the US Army Regimental System was created. The U.S. Army Medical Department Regiment was activated on 28 July, 1986, during ceremonies at Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio, Texas. The mission of the AMEDD Regiment is to enhance combat effectiveness by developing loyalty and commitment, fostering an extended sense of belonging, improving unit esprit, and institutionalizing the warfighting ethos. To that end, the AMEDD Regiment provides a number of services to perpetuate our history, heritage, traditions, valor and sense of belonging.
