  • Lt. Cmdr. Gerald Schmuker, the operational stress control and readiness counselor with Regimental Combat Team 2, speaks to the command of 1st Battalion, 8th Marines, Regimental Combat Team 2, during a class on combat operational stress control in Musa Qal’eh, Jan. 19. Combat operational stress control teaches what stressors can occur during deployments, what Marines can do to deal with those stressors, and what the Marine leadership can do to support their Marines. “Without help or someone to talk to, small issues can grow into much more serious and long-term issues such as post traumatic stress disorder,” said Schmuker. “So it’s very important that the Marines know who they can talk to, where they can go for help and that their leadership is there to support them.”

Marines learned basic medical care during the two-day course that is used for combat related injuries. “I love training Marines and Corpsmen; I love my job. Practicing trauma medicine and passing on my knowledge to others is what I’m about; the CLS course is a great opportunity for that. The future [of trauma medicine] depends on what we pass on,” said Petty Officer Second Class Marcus Marshall, 2nd Regimental Aid Station training officer and corpsman from Pittsburgh, Pa.
  • The Regimental Combat Team 6 sailor of the day is Navy Lt. Ryan P. Maid, operational stress control and readiness psychologist, from Harrisonville, Mo. He has been married for a year.

His duties consist of providing outreach preventative mental health services to Marines and sailors.

Maid has been in the Navy for about two years and said he joined because he always wanted to be in the military. According to Maid, he joined the Navy because it has a variety of billets available for his profession. The variety and options available are also his favorite part of his job and the Navy.

“I wanted a good clinical experience,” Maid said. “I wanted to help people with (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).”

He also joined the Navy because he enjoys being near water.

“There’s not too much water near Missouri, where I’m from,” he added. “That’s why I love being near the water so much.”

During his off time, he enjoys scuba diving, and going to the beach. His favorite football team is the Chicago Bears and his favorite baseball team is the Kansas City Royals.   
He received his undergraduate degree while studying at Central Missouri State University and his graduate degree at Forrest Institute of Professional Psychology. 

According to Maid, he enjoys playing video games, with Madden being his favorite and also enjoys buying gadgets for his computer.

Maid can be seen traveling throughout all of the regiment’s area of operations with Seaman Andrew Backus, a sailor that works for him.

“The lieutenant is a great guy,” Backus said. “I love working for him. He’s just great all around and always has a smile on.”

“I’d like to say hi to my wife,” Maid added. “And let her know that I love her and miss her and can’t wait to see her.”

Nerd fact: Maid says that he still has all of his G.I. Joe action figures from when he was younger.  “I have over 115 guys and 30-40 vehicles,” Maid said. “I guess that’s when my love for the military started. I always liked the idea of being in the military.
