SECTION III. PREPARATION


" I had never heard of a battle in which everybody was killed; but this seemed likely to be an exception, as all were going by turns."
---Captain John Kincaid, fl. 1815, Adventures with the Rifle Brigade (Reminiscence of Waterloo)

A. MEDICAL SUPPORT MATRIX

The Medical Support Matrix is a concise, easy method to understand the medical support plan. It is a valuable planning and execution tool for both defense and offense, and is used to explain how each maneuver element is medically supported during the battle. It is event-oriented, not time-oriented. This information can also be incorporated into either the tactical overlay or the Combat Service Support Overlay/Annex.

B. EXPLANATION OF SAMPLE MEDICAL SUPPORT MATRIX

As the maneuver units depart the assembly area toward the LD/LC, Treatment Teams (TT) 1 and 2 support from their present positions. As units cross Phase Lines Red, Blue, Green, and OBJ Dallas and Omaha, TT 1 and 2 deploy to new support positions. (Figure)

Male and female names are used for checkpoints to distinguish the two treatment teams.
