It's time to give the Marines a dedicated medevac helicopter.
Are Army infantry soldiers more important than Marines as human beings or as components of U.S. defense strategy'.' If this strikes you as a preposterous and insulting notion in 2006, more than six deeades after Iwo Jima, eonsider the fuel that Marines still do not have a dedicated medevae helicopter-a nicety of war that is all about saving limbs and lives and that Soldiers have had for many years.
It is time to change medevae doctrine for the U.S. Marine Corps-Navy team. The doctrine is an anachronism that serves no one very well, least of all the Marines who light on the front lines and display such incredible valor.
