The Army is reaching out to its retired community for volunteers in the fight against coronavirus — particularly those with medical experience, according to an email sent to retirees and obtained by Breitbart News.
The Army has begun deploying medical units and field hospitals to New York and Washington, and will likely send more that will require more staff.
While military leaders say they have enough medical staff and resources to take care of their own force, they have indicated that medical staffing is a limiting factor when providing additional resources to support the civilian population.
The email reads:
The note was signed by Army Lt. Gen. Thomas C. Seamands, deputy chief of staff for manpower.
