Commander's Welcome

Welcome to the 65th Medical Brigade. You are about to join one of the busiest and most diverse organizations in our great Army. As the Army's most continuously forward deployed theater-level Medical Brigade, your tour in Korea will certainly be exciting. I am confident you will find your tour in Korea professionally challenging and personally rewarding.

On the Web, you will find a wealth of information of our brigade and other pertinent information for your family. Let us know both what we are doing well and what we may improve upon.
