CAMP PHOENIX, Kabul, Afghanistan — There were no fools this day, as the medical center (TMC) rolled into action for a medical training exercise. Medics hurried about to receive and assess patients, physician assistants helped stabilize and provide emergency care; all while evaluators recorded and documented the controlled chaos for the TMC training.

“The medical training was outstanding, it was a learning experience logistically, because we had some communication and patient flow challenges, but worked through them and will be ironed out for the future.” said Capt. Stephanie Collins, the medical center officer in charge for the 814th Area Support Medical Company.

The 814th ASMC is responsible for providing force health protection and health service support to the Kabul base cluster. The medical company can provide routine medical services and specialized emergency services to quickly evaluate injuries, stabilize, and medical evacuate if necessary.

“I am continuously impressed with my Soldiers ability to adapt to the continuously changing medical field,” said Capt. Coty Sicble, the 814th ASMC commander. “They have the ability to retain the basic medical task as well as learning the specifics each provider brings to the table.”
