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

    Wait, you mean we have to run up there before we do the push ups and squats? (‘Nene)

    Yes, she was working late and was not hydrated enough for today’s workout. It entailed running up and down the 10 times with a set of five (5) push ups and squats both at the top and bottom of each lap.

    Yes sir it was a hoot just getting to the hill walking through ankle deep mud, standing water and field grass chest high. Oh I forgot we also had to do this with a vest (20/15#) respectfully.

    I for one enjoyed getting my butt handed to me in this manner since mud will always make me feel much cooler and the dew in the foliage was welcomed. Push ups were ok, not fast just steady.

    Looking over at ‘Nene she was having none of it. Had I said anything other than keep it up, or looking good my head would have been cleanly pulled off of my shoulders. Did I mention she was very tired and dehydrated? Yeah, just slightly.

    Yet, as we finished the WOD in memory of a friend I gave Thanks.

    For you brother
