JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO, Texas –
Brooke Army Medical Center conducted a field training exercise Oct. 12-21 to focus on pre-deployment readiness and training.
The semi-annual FTX is a four-phased event that includes planning, pre-deployment, Soldier Readiness Processing, medical team training and recovery to increase individual Soldier readiness, train new leaders on pre-deployment tasks and provide Individual Critical Task List training.
“The FTX provides the opportunity to train BAMC personnel in tasks and activities under field conditions that are not normally conducted during daily healthcare operations,” said BAMC Commanding General U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Deydre Teyhen. “These types of training events give our service members the opportunity to train in garrison for what they might encounter if they deploy downrange.”
