    Sep 14, 2012

    During 2012, the medically non-deployable population at Fort Campbell, Ky., has increased to approximately 20 percent of the Division's overall assigned strength, according to medical profile data reported by Blanchfield Army Community Hospital and the Integrated Disability Evaluation System. To enhance the readiness posture of the brigades, all units must continue to reduce the medically non-deployable population by half, no later than the end of 2013. In an effort to streamline the process and make as many Soldiers as battle-ready as possible, unit commanders will assist with reviews and revisions of policies, processes and training requirements that have caused the medical non-deployable rate to rise.
