The 62nd Medical Brigade from Fort Lewis — their motto: “Proud and steadfast!” — have taken over responsibility for command and control of the medical mission in Iraq. They completed the transfer with the 3rd Medical Command in a ceremony last week at the Al Faw Palace at Camp Victory.

The brigade left Lewis in July for its third Iraq deployment, 15 months this time.

The brigade said in a press release it’s now responsible for more than 3,500 soldiers, sailors and airmen providing care across Iraq to U.S., coalition and Iraqi forces and civilians.
