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.
