Monica Wall, an audio-visual technician with the U.S. Army Pacific Contingency Command Post takes a written exam to test her knowledge during a combat re-certification course at Fort Shafter, Hawaii, May 10. All soldiers receive basic first aid training during Army basic training but combat lifesaver training takes that one step further. Combat lifesavers serve as vital first responders, providing aid to wounded soldiers. (U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt. Richard Colletta/Released)
