Veterinary Service

U.S. Army Maj. Thamus Morgan, a veterinarian with the 411th Civil Affairs Battalion, in support of Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA), demonstrates how to administer a taping device that determines the weight of cattle to a Ugandan veterinary care specialist working with the Uganda People's Defense Force (UPDF) at a farm in Luwero, Uganda.

The Veterinary Service performs food safety operations and inspections to ensure deployed forces receive the safest food and water available. They also care for military working animals and provide public health services during humanitarian assistance missions.
