Buckeye Hills-Hocking Valley Regional Development District and the Meigs County Commissioners secured a Medical Innovative Readiness Training for Meigs County and the surrounding communities, partnering with the 7241st Medical Support Unit, Army Reserve Medical Command from Lexington, Kentucky.

Innovative Readiness Training provides real world training opportunities for our nation’s military service members and units to prepare them for their wartime missions while supporting the needs of America's under-served communities.
