Deployment of team represents a serious violation of Posse Comitatus.
The Department of Health and Human Services has requested a military team to provide direct treatment to Ebola patients inside the United States, according to a Pentagon official.
“In response to a request by the Department of Health and Human Services — and as an added prudent measure to ensure our nation is ready to respond quickly, effectively, and safely in the event of additional Ebola cases in the United States — (Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel) today ordered his Northern Command Commander, Gen. Chuck Jacoby, to prepare and train a 30-person expeditionary medical support team that could, if required, provide short-notice assistance to civilian medical professionals in the United States,” Rear Adm. John Kirby said in a statement.
The military team will observe a “prepare-to-deploy” status for 30 days and will respond to Ebola anywhere in the United States, Kirby said.
Training for the “quick strike team” will be conducted by the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases at Fort Sam Houston in Texas.
