Undergoing training in maneuvers staged at the Naval Medical Field Service School, Camp Lejeune NC, to ready themselves for duty under fire, Navy hospital corpsmen attended to a "casualty" on the beachhead. Morphine has been "injected." Note the used syrette on the sand in the left foreground and while one corpsman bandages the wound, another opens a folding stretcher. In the background another corpsman hastens by on the double quick with a stretcher.
