Topic: Combat Medic Question


This may sound like a stupid question, but I just found out what the military was all about and I may be joining in the next year. Iím looking for careers that might interest me and I thought a medic would be a very rewarding job. Well, what is the MOS for a combat medic? I donít want to be someone who sits in a hospital, Iím looking for the ones who fight with their buddies but are also a medic. Any information would be good. Thanks in advance.

So these 91w's are the ones who are in the fight but are also giving the 'first aid'?

Basically, and they're actually not called combat medics anymore, they're now "medical specs." Guess it sounded prettier.

I believe we have a few Dr. Feelgood's around here (I know we have at least three Navy HCs, not really what you're looking for, but they can probably give you some sound information), I'm sure they'll be able to help you with any more in-depth questions.

If those Navy Doc's are FMF Corpsman they should have alot of good scoop.

A little off topic but, do medics/corpsman that are in combat zone have weapons on them?

Even if they only have sidearms it cant be that hard to get yourself a weapon. Also dose anyone know of any links to info about Navy Coremen (SP) or whatever there called. They are like medics but dont they fight with the Marines?
