Fort Stewart leadership, U.S. Medical Department Activity-Fort Stewart, Winn Army Community Hospital staff and local community members attended a dedication ceremony at the former North Troop Medical Clinic, which is now dedicated and renamed, focused on the Soldiers served there as the Marne Medic Troop Medical Clinic June 25. 

Many months of hard work and dedication from Dr. W. Sanders Marble, the senior historian, at the U.S. Army Medical Department Center of History and Heritage, 3rd Infantry Division Museum Curator, John Potter, a former combat medic, the Winn ACH team, to include the diligent planning of Maj. Michael Brown, Winn ACH Plans, Training, Maneuver and Security chief, went into bringing this day to fruition and Warner thanked them for their commitment to the day’s event.  

“Seven months ago, I outlined to him a vision for renaming and dedicating this clinic,” Warner said of Brown.  “He spent countless hours with the history team planning its execution, to make today possible.”

The Marne Medic TMC is dedicated, in part, to the Soldiers who displayed extraordinary heroism and gallantry in action against enemy forces on July 15, 1918 during the Second Battle of the Marne during WWI. The battle took place in Germany on the Marne River when Germany launched its last offensive in WWI when it met with the 3rd Infantry Division. USA MEDDAC  Winn Army Community Hospital Commander-Fort Stewart, Col. Christopher Warner, spoke in varied detail about the nine Soldiers who earned the Distinguished Service Cross and the 11 Soldiers who earned the Silver Star Medal during the battle.

“The importance of this dedication cannot be overstated as it ties the current staff and Soldiers who receive care here to the very origins and fundamental core of our purpose in military medicine and as the premier division in the United States Army,” Warner said. “This continues to strengthen our commitment and partnership with the Soldiers on this installation and furthers our efforts of establishing Fort Stewart as a premier health readiness platform.”

Warner said the MMTMC joins the other multiple TMCs in the MEDDAC footprint such as Hawks Troop Medical Clinic, Tuttle Army Health Clinic, and the Richmond Hill Medical Home. These clinics are designed to provide primary care and patient services where Soldiers and Families live and work. 

“It’s important for us to remember the sacrifices and the service of those that come before us,” Warner said. “To tie it to our history allows us to remember those acts of heroism, those brave service [members] and those lives that were saved. And specifically for us in the medical field it helps us tie to those who we serve.”  

The MMTMC provides primary care, a full behavioral health clinic, physical therapy, radiology, lab and a pharmacy for Soldiers.
