The U.S. Army Reserves are taking a look at Mayo Clinic's Multidisciplinary Simulation Center and considering the possibility of rotating all medical reservists through training here in Rochester, Minnesota.
It's not a done deal yet, and other centers nationwide have been looked at.
But be sure to read today's print edition of the Post Bulletin, or use your online subscription at PostBulletin.com, to see who's paying attention to a pilot project conducted by Col. Walter Franz and his team.
Also, Franz says he's been alerted to another possible deployment, this time to Afghanistan. His team has previously served in Iraq.
