Hero WOD 18D

Today we’re honored to dedicate RED Friday to all of the life savers in the combat zone, especially the Special Forces Medic – The 18D

OVERVIEW

Special forces medical sergeants are considered to be the finest first-response/trauma medical technicians in the world.

Though they’re primarily trained with an emphasis on trauma medicine, they also have a working knowledge of dentistry, veterinary care, public sanitation, water quality and optometry.

TRAINING

Due to the wide variety of missions, special forces medical sergeants are trained swimmers, paratroopers and survival experts, as well as trained in many forms of combat. Training for the special forces medical sergeants consists of 60 weeks of formal classroom training and practice exercises.

Some of the skills you’ll learn are:

• Physical conditioning, parachuting, swimming and scuba diving

• Using land warfare weapons and communications devices

• Handling and using explosives

• Bomb and mine disposal

HELPFUL SKILLS
