Jody Miller, RES ’17
I am a COL in the Tennessee Army National Guard (TNARNG). I am currently the 30th Troop Command Brigade Commander. One of my subordinate units is the Joint Task Force Medical (JTF-MED), responding to the COVID-19 crisis in the State of Tennessee. JTF-MED consists of 261 Medical Providers, Physician Assistants, Nurses, 68W Combat Medics, Medical Service Corps (MSC) Officers, etc. JTF-MED has set up 35 Remote Assessment Sites across the State, to provide COVID-19 screening and testing, in concert with the Department of Health (DOH). In addition, JTF-MED has a Military Medical Reaction Force that reacts to “911 Calls” in situations like evacuating a nursing home. We have conducted this mission twice already. JTF-MED has been operational for the last five weeks and we don’t expect to be finished anytime soon.
