U.S. Army Africa medical officer share ideas with Moroccan counterparts
RABAT, Morocco – A U.S. Army Africa medical team spent a week sharing casualty evacuation procedures with members of the Moroccan military.
The program was billed as a military familiarization event, but felt more like a conference where ideas were exchanged, said Maj. James Hayes, 41, from Thief River Falls, Minn., a medical service corps officer assigned to USARAF’s surgeon’s office.
The weeklong program, which wrapped up Dec. 5, was planned through the U.S. Embassy in Morocco and coordinated through U.S. Africa Command, USARAF’s higher headquarters.
