Every good battalion in the military needs a medic, a soldier with the ability to take life if needed while also saving the lives of his own men on the field of battle. Combat medicine has evolved greatly over the course of time. Ancient history saw little effort to save lives during battle with armies simply coming back to retrieve the dead after a conflict.
Combat medicine that would eventually lead to the development of units training men like Medic Martinez took a leap forward in the Grande Armee of Napoleon. Surgeon Dominique Jean Larrey directed the development of mobile field hospitals and a corps of trained soldiers seeking to aid those on the battlefield.
The 5 oz Antique Finish Silver Soldiers Collection Medic Martinez depicts the 2nd Battalions field medic. Hes no stranger to the perils of combat, but he will bravely run across a fiery battlefield to rescue his fallen comrades. Medic Martinez will dress the wounds of his fellow soldiers and prepare them for evacuation to a mobile field hospital so the wounds can be better cared for away from combat.
Medic Martinez and his fellow members of the US Army Combat Medic units. The US Armys development of medical services on the battlefield arose from the horrors of the Civil War and was spurred on by Major Jonathan Letterman, Medical Director of the Army of the Potomac and implemented at the Battle of Antietam.
