    Photo Essay: 2018 Pacific Best Medic Competition



    Story by Staff Sgt. Michael Armstrong 

    7th Infantry Division

    The medics’ medical and soldier skills were tested through an array of training exercises and combat lifesaving techniques, including a physical fitness test, water survival test, written test, force on force combat, land navigation, litter carry and rappel testing, stress shoot and obstacle course, finishing with a 12-mile road march.

    Candidates competed as individuals, with the top two individuals going on to represent their respective commands for the Army’s 2018 CSM Jack L. Clark Jr. Best Medic Competition Sept. 15-20 at Joint Base San Antonio, Fort Sam Houston, Texas, and Camp Bullis, Texas.

    "What they have done and what they have shown is that not only are they medically ready to deploy, but they are ready to deploy as a medical force," said Command Sgt. Maj. Clark, Regional Health Command-Pacific during the Aug. 10 awards ceremony just before the top performers were announced.

    The competition's top performers from each respective unit were:
