Joint training exercise ensures combat readiness for military medics
3rd Medical Command (Deployment Support)’s 345th Combat Support Hospital out of Jacksonville, Florida, commanded by Col. Noel Pace, is one of the training audiences participating in Global Medic 2017 at Fort Hunter Liggett, California. The nearly 250 Soldiers assigned to the CSH spent the first few days setting up the hospital and getting it ready to begin receiving patients. The exercise runs 8-28 July, 2017. Global Medic’s unique training opportunity allows U.S. Army Reserve medical units to train alongside their multi-component and joint partners as part of the America’s Army Reserve evolution into the most lethal Federal Reserve force in the history of the nation. The training audience for this year’s Global Medic exercise totaled more than 1,100 service members, ensuring individuals, teams and units are better prepared to provide medical care when they are called to deploy.
