It is my understanding that the Healthcare Bill that was just signed into law will create a Health Servcies Corps. and medical professionals who are a part of this Corps will receive military training. But take a look at these Department of Defense Directives from January 23, 2009 for the "Civilian Expeditionary Workforce". http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pdf/140410p.pdf According to these Directives: "Members of the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce shall be organized, trained, cleared, equipped, and ready to deploy in support of combat operations by the military; contingencies; emergency operations; humanitarian missions; disaster relief; restoration of order; drug interdiction; and stability operations of the Department of Defense in accordance with DoDD 3000.05 (Reference (b))" I don't know about you but it bothers me to read that civilians will be trained and equiped to support military "Combat operations" and the "restoration of order", especially in the same sentence. Think I am going to take another look at my preparations and plans.
