Operation AGILE Medic, a week-long exercise at Joint Base San Antonio-Camp Bullis, Texas, was a Tri-Service medical training exercise that immersed military medics in the seamless process of transporting patients from the Expeditionary Medical Support unit to the En Route Patient Staging System team, and further to Air Evacuation and Critical Care Air Transport Teams, and vice versa.


U.S. Air Force Airmen actively participating in Operation AGILE Medic, a week-long joint service readiness exercise, use gauze to control bleeding on a high-fidelity mannequin at Joint Base San Antonio-Camp Bullis, Texas, Dec. 4, 2023. Following the TCCC (Tactical Combat Casualty Care) approach, trainers employ the mnemonic "MARCH" to guide service members through a strategic sequence of care, significantly improving the chances of survival for wounded personnel. The five critical skills associated with TCCC include 'M' for massive bleeding, 'A' for airway and resuscitation, 'R' for respiration, 'C' for circulation, and 'H' for hypothermia.
