‘Maintain’ Battalion hosts Iraq’s first field medical badge competition

Iraqi army soldiers take a comprehensive written exam as part of an Iraqi Field Medical Badge competition at Al Asad Air Base, Iraq, May 2. The exam was one portion of the competition, which also included a six-mile ruck march, a modified Army Physical Fitness Test and training lanes where competitors had to evaluate and treat the wounds of simulated casualties. The competition was based largely on the requirements for the U.S. Army's Expert Field Medical Badge.
