Medics

On any WW2 battlefield, there would be thousands of men trained to take the life of the enemy when neccesary. But there also were another kind of men and women ready to do what ever it took to save lives. Men and women whom without thinking about their own safety went far above and beyond the call of duty at the risk of getting killed in order to save a fellow soldier or civilians friend or foe. These brave men and women were the combat medics.  A combat medic is responsible for providing emergency medical treatment at a point of wounding in a combat or training environment. Combat medics may be utilized in hospitals and clinics where they have the opportunity to work in additional roles such as operating medical and laboratory equipment, performing and assisting with procedures, and beyond.
