Airmen attached to the 911th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron, 911th Aeromedical Staging Squadron and the Royal Air Force Leuchars, Scotland all joined together at Fort Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania, for tactical combat care training in a combat simulation. The beginning of the week was spent in class learning the skills needed in a variety of combat situations and to be put into practice later on. In the end the Airmen had the opportunity to use mechanical mannequins which simulated breathing, bleeding and most major signs of life for their simulation. The instructors set up an entire scenario with three different locations to give the Airmen an overall sense of the different environments they might be in.
