Abstract:

Current medical regulating doctrine and practice is analyzed by comparing medical regulating in the Korean War years with a possible Korean War scenario today. An analysis of service specific medical treatment capabilities and medical regulating doctrine and how these compliment joint doctrine is examined in the context of the CINCs Operational Plan for Korea. The evolving role of USTRANSCOM in integrating medical regulating and patient transportation systems is examined. The ultimate goal, directly benefiting the supported CINC, is better use of airframes and a higher rate of return to duty patients. This integrated system assists the CINC in meeting his moral responsibility to provide the best medical care possible and to conserve the combat power of his fighting force. Seven specific recommendations are drawn from the research.
