More than 30 VNG medics completed classroom and practical training, including two medical and two trauma scenarios, challenging the Soldiers’ knowledge and skill in their job field. The Fort Pickett-based VNG Medical Command hosted the course, which combat medics must take once every two years to retain their combat medic status.
