Two U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command Soldiers were recognized during a ceremony Jan. 22 for their participation in the 2015 Jack L. Clark Jr. U.S. Army Best Medic Competition at the Fort Detrick Auditorium.
Staff Sgt. Alice A. Craig and Sgt. Edwin J. Figueroa II (shown above exiting a helicopter to head to their next challenge) participated in the competition, which was held Oct. 27-30 at Joint Base San Antonio and Camp Bullis in Texas.
The ABMC, sponsored by the AMEDD Museum Foundation, is a continuous 72-hour competition that consists of 23 scored events that range from tissue suturing to a 50-mile foot march.
Thirty-two teams, each with two medics, competed in this year's event, which is open to all three Army components. Competitors must have earned the Expert Field Medical Badge and/or the Combat Medic Badge to be eligible to participate.
