SARCs are U.S. Navy corpsmen who, in addition to their own extensive combat trauma medical training, undergo the same training as the reconnaissance marines they embed with.
SARCs are highly respected and valued among the Recon Platoons.
SARCs have slotted in to all the different positions in a 6-man recon patrol, including Team Leader, Radio Operator and Reconnaissance Scout.
