RECOMMENDATION:The Navy and Marine Corps should reengineer the casualty-care system to match the warfighting concepts of OMFTS, giving highest priority to improving first-responder care, developing a forward surgical unit, handling and caring for patients contaminated by biological, chemical, or radiological agents and evacuating patients to at-sea care facilities and onward to points of strategic aeromedical evacuation.
