    FORT BENNING, Ga. – Inside Fort Benning’s Medical Simulation Training Center on Bass Road Dec. 4, medics and other experts from across the armed services practice treating “junctional” wounds, those at points where limbs connect to the human torso. The medics were part of a group of about 40 service member and civilians who gathered at Fort Benning to do a close review of a new curriculum that will be used to teach service members a type of battlefield first aid that the U.S. military calls Tier 2 Tactical Combat Casualty Care. The Pentagon plans to make Tier 2 TCCC the new standard for all services. It will replace what is known as Combat Lifesaver training, which has been in use for some years. A final draft of the curriculum is to be delivered to the Department of Defense Dec. 31.
