Joint training exercise ensures combat readiness for military medics
1st Lt. Rebecca Milligan, a medical-surgical nurse assigned to the 7407th Troop Medical Clinic, receives training from Mr. Cory Soto, the Emergency Medical Technician lead instructor for Regional Training Site-Medical Camp Parks. Soto shares moulage techniques with Soldiers to ensure the training audience participating in CSTX 91-17-03 Global Medic has the most realistic patient scenarios on the battlefield. Moulage is the art of applying mock injuries for the purpose of simulating real-world experience for emergency medical training. 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.
