How Navy corpsmen and Army medics work together on deployments
Rivalries are nothing but tough brotherly love between military service branches. Sure, we give each other a hard time. But put us on any mission together, and we become an unstoppable force.
Army medics and Navy corpsmen are a perfect example of service branch cooperation. When they work together, they save lives.

Disclaimer: Let’s be honest — we only work so well together because we’re secretly trying to outdo the other side.
