Summary of "Considerations for Retrograding Deployed Army Pharmacy Operations: What about Department of Defense Civilian Contractors? Lessons from Kosovo."

Over the past two decades, changes in mission and expectations of deployed medical assets are requiring adaptations of pharmacy services. Specifically, the Department of Defense (DOD)-deployed contractors in theater are now eligible for varying levels of care from DOD-deployed assets. Pharmacy must now stock and maintain a complex medication footprint. This new requirement makes the attempt to retrograde a long established deployed pharmacy difficult and presents new challenges.

The Corps provides limited care for privately owned animals of military personnel through non-appropriated funds. Military service veterinarians in the United States Army must be graduates of accredited veterinary schools and must have a state license. (Telephone communication with Lt. Col.
