Abstract : In this era of force packaging' and complex joint operations, the Joint Force Surgeon must appreciate the health services support capabilities and limitations of each component's medical services. This paper reviews the echelons of medical care, briefly provides an understanding of where certain medical assets fit into the organizational scheme, and reviews the role and selected issues surrounding the Navy's casualty receiving and treatment ships in amphibious and joint operations. Saliently, the discussed issues attest to the need for the Joint Force Surgeon's participation in operational planning.
