I wonder if there are combat medic or para-medic on-line URLs and websites. All info is welcome.

Hi Eagle Eye,
There are many, many, many. Here is one for a start. I lost somewhere in my machine my link to the US Army's Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where they discuss the training programs and the diferent fields of research for the combat medics.

In the peace-time establishment, the FFL platoon medic's role is to stabilise and evacuate wounded with a limited supply of pharmaceutical drugs to avoid fack-ups.

Bonjour Eagle Eye and Arnaude,
Under the auspices of "any information", I finally found the site I was looking for (easy to find; I am just not good at using these new-fangled telegraph keys).
Check out: [Only registered and activated users can see links]
This is a Yank site; but the info is near universal. Click on the =military= category. The current US combat type food called "Meals, Ready to Eat" known by the abbreviation "MRE" contains material to further dental health (in theory).
Click on =dental=. This is a critial and weak area for soldiers from all over. It took me years to get into this. Read up on what can be done out in the field to protect yourself from becoming a casualty.
I didn't spend any time surfing this site but for newcomers and wannabees, read up on dehydration. Water consumption is as important as anything else.
Note: Re the "French Connection"; had read somewhere that red wines contain vitamins and also chemicals that inhibit cancer. Although I accept what the docs and scientists say, I have moral obligations to only deal in the wines that are later distilled. I do not know if the French Foreign Legion's messhalls have multilingual wine lists. Confirm this before signing up or make sure you know French.

Not to 'hijack' this thread, but my curiosity got piqued, could you please elaborate a bit on distilled vs. non-distilled wine? What are the pros and cons of each?

Was just joking around.
We all know what wine is. Wine, when later distilled, is made into brandy. The best is the cognac variety. There are strict rules in this category. Cognac, itself, has a few categories.

Thanks Bob W. Will look-see. :)

Thank you very much, BobW! I will have to go examine this matter carefully, yes, but it will have to be "extra fine" rather than Remi or Courvoisier (sp?)
