IN PHOTOS: CFB Wainwright Devouring Serpent military medical training

EDMONTON – Canadian Military medical teams are in action for an intense training exercise at CFB Wainwright.

The exercise is called Devouring Serpent. I was invited to take a look behind the scenes Wednesday in my role as honourary lieutenant colonel of 15 Field Ambulance.

Over 1,400 troops, men and woman, are taking part in the very realistic battle training exercise. It comes complete with simulated injuries that will occur in combat.

Troops are staying in tents on site over the next couple of weeks.
