Special Amphibious Reconnaissance Corpsman
"The Difficult Anytime The Impossible By Appointment Only"

SARCs are a team of Hospital Corpsmen trained and specialized in the same aspects of their Recon Marine counterparts, in Amphibious Operations, Deep Reconnaissance and Direct Action missions. They are also capable of conducting detailed underwater ship-bottom searches. Selection of SARC candidates is a rigorous, grueling (2) year pipline. Screening and training begin with academic and physical fitness assessments far above average with a required commanding officer endorsement. SARCs must complete Field Medical Service School, Fleet Marine SchoolBasic Reconnaisance SchoolNavy SCUBA School, Marine Combatant Dive School, Amphibious Reconnaissance Course, Basic Airborne School, Special Operations Combatant Medic, and Dive Medical Technician aka Dive Medicine Medical Personnel. During operational status, the teams will then be dispersed evenly throughout the Marine Recon Platoons; usually one SARC or Amphibious Recon Hospital Corpsman per platoon. There have been moments when SARCs were the point man, acted as the radio operator, or even the team leader in the Marine Recon Teams.
 
The environments that Recon Marines and Hospital Corpsmen face during a mission are usually very hazardous ...life-threatening "The Difficult Anytime The Impossible By Appointment Only". The Special Amphibious Reconnaissance Corpsmen use their paramedic skills to provide basic life support and other routine emergency medical health care procedures related to the hazards of Scout Swimming, open circuit SCUBA Diving, closed circuit Rebreather Diving, and Military Freefall during amphibious reconnaissance operations. They also instruct and advise the Recon Marines in prevention and treatment of illnesses, whether in combat or training.

The SARC has the duty of Hyperbaric Chamber Operator: skilled in the operation of recompression chambers for hyperbaric treatment. They are also required to know laws and physics of diving, fundamentals of proper gas mixtures, theory and practice of decompression and the use of decompression tables.

SPECIAL AMPHIBIOUS RECONNAISSANCE CORPSMAN MISSION:
  
  • Performs routine sick calls, diagnostic patient care as well as associated operational, administrative, and logistical duties.

  • Performs basic anesthesia, minor surgical, basic clinical laborator, basic radiology, and other routine and emergency health care procedures as required.

  • Instructs and advises junior medical and operational personnel in prevetion and treatment of illness and injuries.
