7-101: Medical/Personnel Accounting

Previous: 7-99: Killed in Action

7-101. When a Soldier becomes a casualty, the platoon combat medic or senior combat medic records the medical treatment the Soldier receives on the Soldier’s DD Form 1380. The BAS and brigade support medical company read the Soldier’s DD Form 1380 when they treat the Soldier. The Infantry battalion S-1 should electronically receive a notification message to update the Soldier’s patient tracking status. In turn, this message should be forwarded to the company. In this manner, a casualty’s location can be determined and Soldiers properly accounted for by the company.
