Comrades in Arms:

For the best effect, please be sure and watch, in "FULL SCREEN" mode, this official video recording from the United States Marine Corps, which was posted at the YOU TUBE web site on Sunday 15 April 2007 by Quinn Madson.

2 inch x 100 inch Combat Reinforcement Tap
4 inch x 16 inch Water-Jel Burn Dressing
0.9 gram Bacitracin Antibiotic Oinment
1/2 fluid ounces USP 10% Povidone-Iodine Topical Solution
10 Water Purification Tablets

An essential item omitted from both of the above kits is a pair of all-purpose EMT shears, which could easily be carried in the combat webbing next to the medical kit, for rapid access.

This contemporary individual combat first aid equipment is a lot different than when I was a soldier, and is even better than what I have in my own personal Emergency Medical Technician trauma kit.

Being retired and on a pension, my medical license expired years ago, so now, I am only authorized to function as a "Good Samaritan" in an emergency situation.

Thank you.

1800 Beach Drive, Unit 311
