I have a friend that was in the Navy for about 8 years spending some time as a Medic working with the Marines. He once mentioned that he went to Goat School. Anyone ever heard of it?

The Q course Goat Lab used to be located behind the HALO wind tunnel at Bragg. Was shut down in late 96-early 97 IIRC. No need to use goats anymore, just do a rotation in any big city trauma center and you will get much better practice at treating gunshot wounds. Now remember, I used to do PSYOP for a living.

I believe the proper term for your friend would Corpsman not medic.

I scrounged the internet for this before and came up with a whole lot of not much. Although EVERYBODY knows somebody that swears they were graded on shot up goats. The whole medic/corpsman pass/fail over a shot goat sounds a little UL to me. I'm not saying Uncle Sugar didn't shoot a few goats and see if some dudes could learn anything from it - but I think its application was limited. How would like to be graded on how well you repaired something that was shot. Too many variables involved to make the testing anywhere near fair. It would be b-a-a-a-a-a-d.

I know that the Special Forces organization that doesn't exist went to Hawaii to shoot goats at long range. (Goats were feral and eating endangered plants - somebody was gonnna off 'em.) But as far as I know, nobody [i]treated[/i] them after they were shot.

Well, whatever he learned there, it was worth it. He has stiched me and a few of my friends up after hockey games, and he work is as good as that I have received from doctors.

I went to Goat school, when I was in the good old US Army. of course it was the[b]M561 Gamma Goat[/b] School. This thing was the biggest [b]POS[/b] ever! (or pretty darn close) I recall the popular theory back then about it's origin... It was designed by a female and she did what she "needed to do" to the General in charge of vehicle procurement.
