Today cadet summer training 8th regiment, Advance Camp Cadets learn the importance of first aid. Today the cadets will be conducting TC3 also known as technical combat casualty care where they are Evaluating casualties under enemy fire and understanding how that process works to save a soldier on the battlefield. As a leader, I think this is very important because One they have to understand how to implement these training Down at the platoon level definitely as a leader we have to be able to understand how to manage our our soldiers and definitely medical is up there as one of the larger tasks and the bigger fight. We’re currently learning what it’s like in the field to take care of a casualty and What a real-life situation would look like and how to combat it and the little things that matter Because we tend to overlook them so it’s good that were getting extra practice to make sure that we Pass this but more importantly note and learning the little things are important. We bring these cadets out here. We get them familiarized with the Methods and the tools used to help save lives help stop bleeding open up airways so that casualty has like an obstruction something like broken teeth from an explosion something like that They know how to treat that injury We’re just trying to get these cadets to the point where they can do the same job To a lesser extent that a medic can do. I know that they take the importance of what they’re doing from this like the importance of these tasks of these methods and The actual meaning behind it. What they what each method does the purpose behind it not saying like oh, yeah That’s gonna save the life, but why I’m putting a tourniquet on The leg why I’m shoving a hose through the casualties knows stuff like that way I’m putting a just skill over a hole the actual meaning behind it because it without that meaning without the purpose Then you just kind of slapping stuff on a person that’s dying and hoping that it works But I hope by the end of this they have a good idea of how to save a life. Well, it’s very important if it happens in real life to know how to address it because you know You might just be with your battle buddy, and there might not be a medic around So we need to know how to do this.
