Mission

SOM+C will advocate for the military special operations medic and assist in their transition from battlefield provider to veteran professional

 

the objectives of SOM+C are to focus on the career, capabilities, and community of the special operations medic

Why Special Operations Medics?

Special Operations Medics selflessly sacrifice daily to bring our heroes home. They are a rare breed, and SOM+C is focused on support to help these warriors. They attend some of the harshest training in the military, and work tirelessly on their craft, all the while ignoring personal and professional needs. Special Operations Medics are vital assets to the civilian and military community.

 

SOM+C is here to provide them the support and resources they have earned.
