Medical Battle Packs

At Fort Sam Houston, the Tactical Combat Medical Care (TCMC) course is taught by US Army Physician Assistants to deploying Doctors and PAs. The Battle Pack is one of the many great ideas to filter out of that course.  It has made it way to the Canadian side of the house by my deployment partnered with a US Army PA.

Always check the current CoTCCC or CCCWG 
guidelines for direction on Battle Pack contents.
