Virgin Islands National Guard 104th Troop Command is scheduled to conduct periodic health assessments (PHA) and soldier readiness processing (SRP) at the Estate Bethlehem Military Compound on St. Croix, Friday through Sunday, May 18-20.

Approximately 285 soldiers will participate in annual medical and personnel readiness during a PHA and SRP event. The SRP will be at the Lionel A. Jackson Armory.

“This process is to determine the readiness of the subordinating units and to address their shortfalls,” said Lt. Col. Mike Navarro, troop commander for 104th Troop Command.

VING’s Medical Detachment, with support from West Virginia and Logistics Health Incorporated, will spearhead the annual health assessments to include: hearing, dental, vision and behavioral health screenings.

The dental, hearing and case management will be located in the 210th Regional Training Institute facility. All other services will be at the Joint Forces Headquarters drill hall floor.

For more information, contact Lt. Col. Mike Navarro at 712-7795 or Lt. Col. Jean Moving-Collins, deputy state surgeon, at 201-9814.
