Army Medicine In Vietnam 1 – WARNING GRAPHIC WAR FOOTAGE

Long lost Army training film for medics in the Vietnam conflict is one of the most depressing and savage movies ever produced. Not for the faint of heart this shows the horrors of the battlefield while the narrator prattles on about how great the medical is. Part 1 of 3

    I Graduated from Illinois State Univ. with a BS in Science Ed.and was invited by Uncle Sam to be in the US military.I first saw this film and many others , while being stationed at Brooke Army Medical Training Center Ft. Sam Houston Tex. while in
    Combat Corpsman Training. 10/70. I still remember my first impressions thinking that if this film were to be shown on TV National News , there would be a great outcry to get us out of the war.Some of the Medical Staff you see here were, later reassigned back to Brooke and were my Instructors.After completion of Corpsman Training, I continued through Op.Rm Procedures School.[ Surgery].I helped operate on casualties, worked In Trauma[Emergency Ward] and Hospital Central Materials as an Instructor and Specialist in Sterilization Procedures of all Hospital Surgical packs and surgical Equipment.I was exposed to about every trauma you could find during War and can remember all of the Hospitals, packed with patients and amputees,in wheelchairs, wheel to wheel in corridors with standing room only My long time best childhood friend was killed in the Asu valley.I lost many childhood, HS and college friends over there and was later critically injured and permanently disabled on route to a further duty station.I knew what it meant to be on both sides of the operating room table. I spent 1.5 years in the Army, Navy and VA hospitals with every complication. With God's help I survived and later became a teacher, big pharma rep and then a Veteran Employment Rep , [now retired] Thank you all veterans for your service.

    I remember seeing this while I was serving, in the British Army. We were told the US Government initially made the film, to reassure families back home that their boys were being looked after, but when it was viewed, pre-release to Joe Public, it was (sensibly) decided to be too graphic, and wasn't going to serve it's purpose!

    When I was in the Norwegian National Guard in the late 80's they showed us this movie. I sat on the floor right in front of the tv. I passed out after a while. I had to go to my room. One officers came in later and told me to just pack my bags and go home. I had nothing to do there. They gave me kitchen duty instead :). Terrible movie.

    I remember our whole Company was shown a movie similar to this when we first arrived for Combat Medic training down at Ft. Sam Houston back in 86. I remember thinking what the hell have I gotten myself into, and am I going to be able to do this if the shit hits the fan and we go to war. By the time we graduated from AIT though, I knew I could do it.

    Very interesting to see the change in battlefield medical care from the Vietnam days to today. Asides from modern medical imaging and the use of less-invasive operations, it is fascinating to see the difference in polytrauma treatments particularly in regard to haemorrhage control. You look at how at 4:28 the physicians control the patient's bleed through the use of the pressure points of the femoral artery, whereas nowadays a physician would apply a tourniquet just above the wound in an attempt to control blood loss.

    God bless doctors, surgeons, nurses, and science. I hope our military gets stronger and bigger to keep all foreign threats to our way of life and freedom far away and have more than ever is needed to immediately delete all threats that do not listen to the warning.
