The 1st Cavalry Division will host an award ceremony to recognize the Best Medic Competition winners after a grueling 3-day competition Oct. 21 at 2 p.m. on Cooper Field at Fort Hood, Texas.

The Best Medic Competition is a culminating event and competition for all medical Soldiers to promote excellence and proficiency in all subject areas of Tactical Combat Casualty Care, Prolonged Field Care and Patient Evacuations.

The competition tested competitors, both physically and mentally, who represented their brigade to earn the title of Fiscal Year 2022 1st Cavalry Division Best Medic.
