Perfecting Preparations For Battle

ADF STAFF

Those committed to defending their nations know they also must be prepared to help those who serve alongside them. When battlefield casualties occur, quick action can be the difference between life and death. In November 2021, Soldiers with the Armed Forces of Mauritania worked with U.S. Army Special Forces instructors during Joint Combined Exchange Training. Here, a Mauritanian Soldier fits a tourniquet around the leg of a colleague during a simulated casualty drill. Soldiers also practiced moving the wounded to safety on stretchers across the desert landscape. The joint training covered other essential skills, such as close-quarters battles, small-unit tactics and mission planning.
