supervision of attached medical units. It is assigned to theater Army MEDCOM in the
COMMZ based on the general support requirements of the corps forces supported.
b. Organization. The organization of the headquarters, medical group, was
discussed in paragraph 5-11. The medical group headquarters in COMMZ is identical to
that employed in the corps.
c. Concept of Operations. Medical units are assigned or attached to the group
headquarters by the theater Army MEDCOM. The nature of the COMMZ requires that
medical groups be employed to perform dual mission responsibilities consisting of health
service support to forces in the combat zone as well as to COMMZ troops. Support to
the combat zone consists of relieving the combat zone of its patients and reinforcing
combat zone health service support. Generally, the medical groups located in proximity
to the combat zone will be charged with this responsibility and will furnish area support to
COMMZ troops within their respective zones of operations. Medical groups located
farther to the rear provide support on an area basis. This support consists of units
furnishing station-type hospitalization, short-haul patient evacuation, patient holding, and
other support. Medical groups may contain such medical attachments as dispensary,
preventive medicine, dental, and veterinary units. Units are readily reallocated between
groups by action of the MEDCOM to accomplish shifts in workload.
