Military Medics Train During 32nd Golden Coyote Exercises

As the annual Golden Coyote military exercises have started in the Black Hills, medics from the different National Guard groups participating are getting experience administering first aid under simulated scenarios. The article from the Rapid City Journal reports that the medics are gaining valuable experience in treating battlefield wounds from multiple situations while under simulated fire from enemy combatants. The training experience will help the medics to do their job more efficiently should they come under fire while attempting to save a wounded soldier's life on the battlefield.

Be sure to check out past news articles related to the Golden Coyote exercises at this archives link.

For more information on the exercises as well as a history of the event, check this South Dakota National Guard website.
