Special Features:
Fort Meade is located approximately halfway between two major metropolitan areas, Washington DC and Baltimore, MD. Both cities offer excellent food, entertainment and cultural opportunities. The Smithsonian Institute in DC and the National Aquarium in Baltimore are not to be missed. There is ample opportunity for outdoor activities at the Atlantic seashore, the Chesapeake Bay and the Appalachian mountains, all less than two hours away. Operating near the nation's capital allows for exceptional opportunities to interact with other members of the Veterinary Corps across specialties. The Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP), Walter Reed, US Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine (USACHPPM) and Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) are all within driving distance and often provide lectures and educational opportunities to veterinary personnel in the area. The relatively compact nature of the National Capital District Veterinary Command allows for considerable interaction between veterinarians and soldiers at different installations. Furthermore, close proximity to both the Distric and Regional Command Headquarters provides for excellent communication within your chain of command.

Description:
As a new Captain, you may be assigned as the Branch Chief at Fort Meade. Your responsiblities would include: supervising comprehensive installation food safety inspection at Fort Meade and Annapolis Commissary; provide sanitary inspections of several civilian commercial food establishments; provide zoonotic disease prevention, management, and surveillance programs as the Veterinary Preventative Medicine Officer and as a member of the Rabies Advisory Board; provide care for National Security Agency (NSA) working dogs, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) working dogs, U.S. Customs working dogs, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) working dogs and government owned mascots; provide privately owned animal care through Veterinary Treatment Facilities at Fort Meade; supervise the operation of stray animal control/adoption programs and the Rabies Control Program.
