  • Schedule an overseas Family member screening appointment by calling 703.696.0073 at Rader Clinic, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall (JBM-HH).
  • The medical provider will review the paperwork with each patient and determine suitability. The DA Form 5888 and DA Form 7246 must be authenticated with an MTF stamp from an authorized medical provider. (Note: Not all medical providers can perform overseas screenings. If a non-authorized physician signs the forms and / or the forms are not stamped by the MTF, military personnel will NOT accept them, and orders will be delayed.)
