A future conflict with a near peer in a contested, multi-domain battlefield will create a
complex operational environment, exposing capability gaps for the U.S. Army. Our
otential adversaries have capabilities to operate in all domains and can be expect to
exploit U.S. vulnerabilities resulting in an anti-access / area denial battlefield (A2AD).
Our ability to evacuate casualties to a higher level of care and the capability needed to
treat the casualties at the point of injury does not exist for an A2AD scenario.
Given this prolonged care capability gap, the Army needs to assess, adapt, and reorganize
medical assets to better support the force. Medical capabilities at the Role 1 must be
increased to mitigate death in the future A2AD operational environment. The paper
proposes leadership actions to influence doctrine, policies and laws, force structure
reform of medical personnel authorizations to increase medical capability at the point of
injury, and essential training in critical skills needed to save the most lives possible in
prolonged care scenarios at Role 1.
