August 3, 2012
HEIDELBERG, Germany — The Heidelberg Medical Department Activity cased its colors at a deactivation ceremony Friday.
After nearly 70 years as a unit and 67 years at Nachrichten Kaserne, HMEDDAC slipped into the history books as U.S. Army Europe continues its transformation.
On a hot, sunny morning Col. Jeffrey Clark, commander of the Europe Regional Medical Command and the unit’s commander Col. Telita Crosland, gave speeches as present and former members of HMEDDAC watched. The USAREUR Brass Quintet provided music for the ceremony and historian Christian Führer traced the lineage of the unit and its history in Heidelberg.
