Blanchfield Army Community Hospital Public Affairs

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH)Fort Campbell, KY – Soldiers from Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH) recently participated in K9 Tactical Combat Casualty Care to enhance their ability to provide point of injury care to military working dogs in a deployed environment.

“Our 68Ws (combat medical specialists) are on the front lines and so are our military working dogs, and often we are not. So when those military working dogs are hurt in the line of fire, the first person to see them and get hands on them are our medics. So it’s important for the [medics] to know when they have this injured military working dog, what they can do and how they can save this dog’s life.” said Capt. Michael Hoffman, an Army veterinarian assigned to the Fort Campbell Veterinary Center, one of six veterinary staff who conducted the training.
