Navy Medics Train for Battlefield Conditions in in Crime-Infested Chicago - Newsmax.com

Chicago's gun violence problem is so serious the Navy is now training its medics in a hospital there for them to gain experience dealing with battlefield-like injuries.

According to The Wall Street Journal, John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital in the west side of Chicago is hosting medics who will soon be deployed overseas.

It would seem to me, if you want to train medics, you'd want them with EMS. By the time most GS victims get to the hospital, they've been stabilized past the point most medics would see a GSW on the battlefield.
I will never apologize for being an American.

The NAVY must not have been told about the no guns.

Try again. You need to post that in 15 languages, Brail, and American sing language to be valid.

I'll work on it.

You bring up something I became curious about.
In our all inclusive world of diversity, has there ever been a 'posted' sign, (as in the regulation MN sign) ever printed in any language other than Ingiriiska?

I have clients that have purchased them in English with Spanish under the English.

Luckily I can't read either. I blame the public school system.
