U.S. Capt. Jamie Seidl, a family medicine physician with Munson Army Health Center, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and Dr. Arambi Etienne assess a patient’s ears and hearing during MEDRETE 18-2, on Apr. 13, 2018, at the Hôpital Militaire D’Instruction in N’Djamena. This year marks the fifth year that the U.S. is conducting MEDRETE with the Chadian medical community. MEDRETE 18-2 is part of a series of medical readiness training exercises that U.S. Army Africa is scheduled to facilitate in several African countries, and serves as an opportunity for the partnered militaries to hone and strengthen their general surgery and trauma skills while reinforcing the partnership between our countries. The exercise brings together medical professionals from the Chadian military and the U.S. Army to foster cooperation while conducting medical specific tasks. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Micah Merrill)
