HEIDELBERG, Germany — Europe Regional Medical Command will case its colors at Heidelberg’s Nachrichten Kaserne during a ceremony April 23.
The colors will be uncased the following day 90 km away at Sembach Kaserne, officially relocating the command’s headquarters to the KMC.
The move marks a significant step in transformation for Army Medicine in Europe. More steps will take place this summer as Europe Regional Dental Command and U.S. Army Research Unit-Europe both relocate to Sembach.
ERMC Commander Col. Jeffrey B. Clark and Command Sgt. Maj. Robert Luciano will officiate at both the ERMC casing and uncasing ceremonies. The casing ceremony will take place at 3 p.m. April 23 at the Wilson Theater, with the uncasing ceremony scheduled for 2 p.m. April 24 at Sembach’s Community Activities Center. All are invited to attend.
The U.S. Army Europe Regional Medical Command was activated on Oct. 16, 1994.
Because the ERMC commander also serves as command surgeon for USAREUR and 7th Army, the command’s headquarters has been in Heidelberg since the summer of 1997.
Much of the command’s staff has already relocated to Sembach.
All staff is expected to be in place by June.
