    FORT INDIANTOWN GAP, Pa. – More than 100 Pennsylvania Army National Guard medical personnel, including Army Medical Department (AMEDD) officers and medical readiness noncommissioned officers, attended the third annual medical training symposium here March 29-31.

    The three day event consisted of many breakout sessions covering a wide variety of topics pertaining to the medical field, everything from nursing to behavioral health.

    On the first day of the symposium participants were welcomed by Lt. Col. Molly Warnick, Pennsylvania Army National Guard state surgeon, and were then presented with a strategic overview from the national level by Col. Michael Pelzner, National Guard Bureau chief surgeon.

    Maj. Gen. Anthony Carrelli, Pennsylvania’s adjutant general, then made remarks on the value of healthcare providers within the Pennsylvania National Guard and the important role the Soldiers have in unit readiness. Afterwards, Brig. Gen. Carl Reese, Department of the Army assistant surgeon general for mobilization, readiness and National Guard affairs, provided the audience with an update and valuable insights from the Office of the Surgeon General.

    Following the Generals’ remarks, Reese and Pelzner presented Col. Harry Caravaggio III, former deputy commander/administrative officer of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard Medical Detachment, with a prestigious medical award – The Order of Military Medical Merit, for his significant achievements and contributions to the AMEDD community over the span of his impressive Military career. The Order of Military Medical Merit is noteworthy because it can only be presented to an individual by prior recipients of the award. The Pennsylvania Army National Guard now has three recipients of the award: Brig. Gen. Carl Reese, Sgt. 1st Class Vincent Occhienna, and Col. Harry Caravaggio.
