|Publication Date:||24 August 2001|
The AFMS must be ready and capable of providing required medical support to the warfighters no matter the scenario. Potential deployments include the full spectrum of deployed contingencies. A robust medical war reserve materiel (WRM) program is essential to meeting the logistics requirements of this capability. This system begins with an initial force package known as the squadron medical element (SME) progressing to the fully developed stage of the mature AFTH where significant specialty care capability and intensive care will be available. It is critical that the AFMS continue to deliver essential care targeted towards optimizing warfighter performance.
