You may have read some of my articles where I talk about the latest military methods used to save more lives on the battlefield. Then you say, how does an old country surgeon and obstetrician, of all things, have any idea of what the military is doing. The guys an old geezer, for pete’s sake, is he some kind of geriatric navy seal corpsman or combat medic or big-city trauma surgeon? No, I respect those guys too much to pretend I’m in their league, but I do know a thing of two that’s worked for me over a long career, and I keep up with the latest thinking in military, EMS, and wilderness medical journals, certifying in advanced wilderness provider topics whenever possible. Amy’s the same. We discuss some core principles of tactical combat casualty care, including phases of care and the MARCH/PAWS paradigm.

Plus, have people ever given you the impression that preparedness is not for “normal” folks? Well, we’ll talk about what “normal” means and whether it’s sane to not be actively preparing for natural and man-made disasters.
