ACHH consists of a History and Archives branch and the AMEDD Regiment. Although separate, the AMEDD Museum is a partner in the presentation and preservation of AMEDD History. ACHH collects, preserves, and interprets the history of the AMEDD in order to educate and inform, serving as a multifaceted resource for the history of the AMEDD.
The mission of the AMEDD Regiment is to enhance combat effectiveness by developing loyalty and commitment, fostering an extended sense of belonging, improving unit esprit, and institutionalizing the warfighting ethos. The Regiment provides services to perpetuate AMEDD history, heritage, traditions, valor and a sense of belonging.
The historians and archivist of ACHH gather, preserve, interpret and present the history of the AMEDD. They also provide historical support through publications, outreach, and other media. The history of the Medical Center of Excellence (MEDCoE) is collected as a part of these efforts. Encompassing AMEDD documents and files, the research collection in the Archives consists of over 250,000 items.
