Iraqi army soldiers rush a simulated casualty to an ambulance during the casualty evacuation portion of testing for the Iraqi Field Medical Badge at Al Asad Air Base, Iraq, May 2. The modified casualty evacuation event 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 Staff Sgt. Tanya Thomas)
