    Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class Lauren Dimaria, assigned to Branch Health Clinic (BHC) Everett was lauded for her performance(s) during training at the Cold Weather Medicine Course at Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center (MCMWTC) in Bridgeport, Calif., Jan. 28, 2020. The course was 23 days of intensive training that required a hospital corpsman participating to train in providing direct medical care as well as mountain rescue skills in freezing elements of MCMWTC with training elevation ranging from 6,800 feet to approximately 11,500 feet above sea level in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. The winters are severe, and trainees like Dimaria typically have to deal with maneuvering over six to eight feet of snowpack. She was the only female in her training group, and received a United States Marine Corps Certificate of Commendation for her distinction as the course’s honor graduate by scoring a 92 percent on the written exam and completing all of her hands-on training on the first attempt (Courtesy image).
