Brigade History

A Symbolic Moment

MG Timboe, Founding Commander TXSG-MBDE and CSM Knobel Unfurling the flag of the TXSG-MBDE for the first time. Fort Sam Houston, Texas, February 2004.

In March 2003 the Texas State Guard Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) was officially formed as a component of the Texas Military Forces, under the Texas Adjutant General, and at the express direction of the Governor of Texas. Initially, the Medical Reserve Corps was cosponsored by, and to this day still has a working relationship with, The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and other state-supported health science centers. Reorganized as the TXSG Medical Brigade (MRC) in May 2007, the membership has increased to over 400 statewide.

Texans Serving Texans - The Medical Brigade was created as a regional medical response team that can be called upon to assist in Texas public health emergencies, including biological terrorism, epidemics, and disasters. The primary mission of the Texas State Guard Medical Brigade is to augment the emergency response efforts of local public health authorities that require additional assistance. Additionally, upon approval of the Medical Brigade command, units participate in local community events to augment on-site healthcare providers, usually in support of TXSG safety/security teams deployed to assist with safety-related activities.
