So he won best medic for the FOB sponsored by an Army unit?

A congratulations is obviously due (hell of a honor) but that is not the US Army best medic competition.

It would be the equivalent of having a Sniper match at a FOB with a few LN/FN sniper teams competing and calling it the International Sniper competition. It just ain't the same. And I don't say that to take away from his winning of that competition, just that he basically won a unit level match. Which is still a damn good accomplishment.

Yes, the takeaway was that he won an Army sponsored event that was largely staged by the revered 82nd airborne division and showed mastery of technical skills as outlined in the Ranger handbook. And that he was the only squid who was in the competition, and he won it.

The 82nd threw in the towel so they can hurry up and eat those amazing chicken parmesan sandwiches they sell at KAF. god they were so good.
