On the battlefield, every element of the Military Health System (MHS) comes together to make the difference between life and death. Army, Navy and Air Force medical professionals help ensure those in uniform are medically ready to deploy anywhere around the globe on a moment's notice. And these medical professionals are also ready to go with them. There isn’t another military medical force like it in the world—with the expertise, the assets and the global reach of our health system.
