(Jaaike Brandsma, Dutch Army Medic who lost her leg while on duty in Afghanistan due to a suicide bomber. While it is the main role of a combat medic to save the lives of their fellow soldiers, even they are susceptible to wounds and fatality)
As the start of my Army reserve training begins, I am constantly reminded that no matter how tough the next two weeks it will be as a combat medic, the pain I will have to go through pales in comparison to what my fellow stretcher bearers have to undergo in war condition and upholding peacetime efforts in volatile territories. It heartens me to know that my battalion mates are enthusiastic about our upcoming missions and at the end of the day, we will be building Battle Casualty Stations with gusto and honour. Seek, Save, Serve. Medics!
