Spc. Carol Kauk, a combat medic with the 814th Medical Company of the North Dakota Army National Guard and Bismarck, N.D., native, checks the heart rate of a woman, July 19, at a humanitarian civic assistant site in Doryumu, Ghana. The 814th worked with the Ghana armed forces at three HCA sites to provide basic medical care as part of MEDFLAG 11 in Ghana. A key program in the United States’ efforts to partner with the government of Ghana, MEDFLAG 11 is the latest in a series of exercises involving U.S. military forces and African partner militaries with the aim of establishing and developing military interoperability, regional relationships, synchronization of effort and capacity-building. More than two dozen members of the North Dakota National Guard's 814th Medical Company are playing an active role in the exercise. (Photo by Spc. Jess Raasch)
