TCCC in Action (B/1/75)

Quote:
"Staff Sgt. Bowen's actions during this operation are some of the most impressive feats I've ever witnessed," Carazo said. "Not only did his actions save the lives of his fellow Rangers, but he performed a staggering display of technically superior field medicine while under fire for more than 90 minutes. His blatant disregard for his own safety was evident throughout."

From the first explosion that wounded three rangers until the casualties were evacuated to the next level of medical care, was approximately two hours.

Two hours under heavy enemy fire, danger close, with two of the casualties critically wounded, Bowen and Able's leadership, courage under direct enemy fire and the ability to administer life-saving aid, was without a doubt the reason three Rangers came home from this deployment.
Full article below is a good read.

Incredible display of TCCC in action.

Hats off to the Ranger Regiment for what they have done to advance the art and science of SOF medicine, ultimately saving untold numbers of lives.

That sounds like it should be written up and shared as a very successful case of military innovation.

Not just the “who”(was saved), and the “what”(was done), but the “how”(process used to achieve it).

Does anyone know if a case study including the “how” has been conducted and if it’s shareable?
