Army Reserve Doctor Treats Children and Soldiers

National Army Medical Department Augmentation Detachment provides innovative training opportunities

ATLANTA -- As an anxious mother looks on, Dr. Melvin Berger closely examines the light red rash that is visible over most of the arms and legs of her otherwise healthy and rambunctious 10-month old little boy. The child offers some protest when the doctor tries to look in his ears but is otherwise happy and content to play with his mother’s keys. A mild food allergy is the suspected cause of the rash. The following week Berger is setting up office in a tent among the vast training fields at the Army’s Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, La. This is quite a contrast from the quiet suburban Cleveland office where he was examining the little boy.
