We had more combat life-saving class today. This time, we learned how to administer intravenous needles on each other (in the event we have to while in the ‘stan.)

Talk about trust! Today’s class was just practice. Tomorrow we will actually have our classmates (some of whom were NOT paying attention in today’s class,) stick needles in each other’s arms so we can get a feel for what to do when the time comes. I’m not looking forward to it, but I’ll do it.

Hey, it beats receiving a powerpoint presentation!
