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

Sgt. Kenneth Stover, a medic with C Company, 703rd Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Advise and Assist Brigade, 3rd Infantry Division, grades an Iraqi army soldier as he tries to complete as many push-ups as he can in one minute during testing for the Iraqi Field Medical Badge at Al Asad Air Base, Iraq, May 2. The modified Army Physical Fitness Test was one portion of the competition, which also included a six-mile ruck march, extensive written testing 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. (U.S. Army photo by Pfc. Brian Chaney)
