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

An Iraqi army soldier navigates under concertina wire during the trauma lane portion of testing for the Iraqi Field Medical badge at Al Asad Air Base, Iraq, May 2. The trauma lane was one portion of the competition, which also included a six-mile ruck march, extensive written testing and other 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.
