Hospital Corpsmen Go Through Training For Battlefield

We got to see how valuable the corpsmen really are, as teams of four made their way through the woods carrying a dummy patient on a stretcher through a obstacle course, complete with barbed wire, steep inclines, and ropes. The men and women are essentially simulating with the obstacle course, what they will be doing on the battlefield. They'll be working to save the lives of injured marines. Most of the Navy corpsmen will soon get a chance to use the skills learned today, as many of them will deploy in the next ninety days.
