HQ ARRC conducts Medical Wargame exercise
INNSWORTH, United Kingdom - HQ ARRC's Medical Branch conducted Exercise ARRCADE AESCALPIUS here June 6-7, 2018.
The exercise served as a tactical medical wargame with the aim of exploring what the ARRC's medical concept for supporting warfighting should be and how the ARRC could work most effectively in support of its subordinate formations.
