192nd Medical Group

The 192nd Medical Group mission is to provide a healthy and mission ready force to train and prepare for state disaster and federal wartime medical taskings while promoting and monitoring the health, fitness, and wellbeing of all members of the Virginia Air National Guard.

The 192nd MDG is headquartered at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia. There is also a satellite clinic at the 203rd Red Horse Squadron in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear Explosive (CBRNE) Enhanced Response Force package (CERFP) members are located at Waller Depot in Richmond, Virginia. The CERFP mission covers various locations state-wide and conducts a biannual collective training held at different locations around the state which lasts anywhere from three to six days. The unit has trained at Virginia Beach Fire Training Center, Camp Pendleton, Fort Pickett, Henrico Fire Training, Fort AP Hill, Washington DC Fire, Langley Air Force Base, and Waller Depot.

The 192nd MDG makes up both the Guard Medical Unit and CERFP.

The CERFP provides immediate response upon order by the governor during CBRNE incidents or other catastrophic events assisting local, state and federal agencies by performing medical triage, giving emergency medical treatment and providing medical support to casualty contamination and war zone medical support to search and extraction.

This past year, the 192nd MDG has supported multiple events and missions. They supported the presidential and gubernatorial inaugurations, completed a CERFP exercise with their Army counterpart at Fort Pickett, and supported exercise Vigilant Guard. Twelve medical personnel including physician’s assistants, nurses, physical therapists, medics and administrative and public health technicians assisted the 633rd Medical Group with a cumulative total of 550 Title 10 man-days during permanent change of station critical shortage days in the operation room, physical therapy, emergency department and flight medicine. Due to 192nd MDG’s efforts, the active duty, reserve and guard missions at JBLE continued seamlessly, and the JBLE community, including dependents and retirees, were expeditiously cared for.

Two enlisted members assisted with the state partnership mission in Tajikistan. The 192nd MDG supported the humanitarian Louisiana Care Innovative Readiness Training mission. Four of the MDG’s top medical team members went to some of the most devastated locations in Louisiana to provide basic medical care and human compassion. Other than providing medical assistance and mission ready capabilities, the 192nd MDG was rated number one in the Drug Demand Reduction Program and number two in the region for mission readiness.
