Fort Campbell, KY – “The intent of the train-up was to engross the medics with the skills needed to earn the badge, to show them what right looks like and to give them a basic understanding of what they will see at EFMB,” said Sgt. 1st Class Scott Greene, “Bastogne” medical operations noncommissioned officer in charge.
“[Participants] will see the lanes once, that’s it, and then they’ll be expected five to seven days later to test on that lane and get a ‘go’ on it. It’s not very feasible, so we devised this plan to train as many medics across the brigade in a format that allowed them to see the tasks and perform it on an simulated casualty as many times as needed to understand it,” stated Greene.
