    Default Flags, unifroms, guns and more?

    The current issue of EMS Magazine advances the concept of honor guards, drills and other paramilitary expressions of our healing arts. It sets the mind to thinking? Perhaps a tattoo on (or under)the arm of the EMS folks on parade might be in order too?

    Guess I'm missing the point you're trying to make.

    When phrased this way, it sounds so much sillier, doesn't it?

    I should have spelled uniform correctly?

    I think having EMS Agencies adopt US Marine Corps Style Drill Teams to parade in public is a departure for the norm in health care and emergency care as we have known it since the 1960s. The pictures in the piece in EMS Magazine are quite Spartan in appearance. Would you want to be rescued by such stern folks standing at attention if you had a choice? In some European and Asian nations there would be no problem! Here? I am not at all sure!
