The art behind Army medical training
U.S. Army
U.S. Army Spc. Harrison Greene, a patient administration specialist with the 4220th U.S. Army Hospital from Shoreham, New York, is a member of the Warrior Exercise 91 14-03 moulage team. The team's goal for WAREX is to learn from the experience while also improving the quality of training for soldiers participating in the events. "A moulage is a real-world enhancement to a medical training mannequin or a live role player," Greene said. "It is a way to make the training more realistic, to really make sure that soldiers know what they are doing."
