  • Death of Med Coys

    With the Re-org do any of the other medics feel we come out bad considering we have lost our identity. Medics isnt the first thing that comes to my mind when you say Logs to me but it is in the US DOD definition of logistics

    The science of planning and carrying out the movement and maintenance of forces. In its most comprehensive sense, those aspects of military operations that deal with: a. design and development, acquisition, storage, movement, distribution, maintenance, evacuation, and disposition of materiel; b. movement, evacuation, and hospitalization of personnel; c. acquisition or construction, maintenance, operation, and disposition of facilities; and d. acquisition or furnishing of services.

    and what about recuitment having stuck T/S & medics together?

    Will the transport and medical coys not recruit seperately, in a similar fashion to coys in infantry battalions?

      But Inf Bns all carry out the same task-Kill & Blow s**t up. Medics provide out of hospital care, T/S transport supply of personnel-can you see the problem?

        No, it will still attract the same people, it won't change peoples perception of what training they want to, unless transport convince all the new recruits that steyrs, gpmgs and nissans are better then defib machines and ambulances!
        The trick to pet names is a combination of affectionate nouns. Honeybun. Sugarpie. Kittentits.

          Infantry kill stuff

          ARTILLERY blow stuff up

          Medic's patch up who's been blown up

          Transport moves us somewhere else to start the process again.
          It is only by contemplation of the incompetent that we can appreciate the difficulties and accomplishments of the competent.

            Exactly. You wont have the medics identity, but you'll have the training and expertise.

              No, I am not worried about the name change. Thats all it is. We will still be medics. We will still be expected to carry out a job. We will still train along our PDF counterparts. So whats the difference?
              If your not in bed by 4 o' clock it's time to go home!

                    They provide the medical personnel that are then attached to units of the brigade at company and battalion level, in addition to other duties (similar to a Field Ambulance in British Army).
