Iraqi Soldiers apply an intravenous needle to a simulated patient during the Combat Lifesaver Course here, Nov. 25. Thirty-two Iraqi Soldiers graduated from the two-day course that was taught using media presentations and hands-on training. At the end of the second day, the Iraqi Soldiers took the final exam, which consisted of four common combat scenarios. They had to assess their patient and provide immediate medical care while being evaluated on their skills. "By teaching the CLS course, we're helping the Iraqi Army take one step closer in being able to operate on their own," said Cpl. Jose C. Lopez, 28, from Bronx, N.Y., a motor transportation operator with STP, 1st Maint. Bn. (-) (Rein.), 1st MLG.
