National Guard officers were trained with US Army personnel in providing care to the wounded on the battlefield. The said training was jointly organized by the Special Forces Command and the United States European Command (USEUCOM). 

The purpose of the training, which was conducted with the participation of medical and paramedical personnel from various Formations and Commands of the National Guard, was to increase the knowledge during the triage, handling and evacuation of the wounded on the battlefield. In particular, it included practical training in providing care under fire, bleeding management, hypothermia, wound healing and evacuation of the wounded from the battlefield.

The training is considered particularly beneficial, as it provided the National Guard personnel with the opportunity to be trained and gain valuable knowledge from specialized First Aid providers and US paramedics. It is a continuation of the important initiatives that are underway as well as a confirmation of the continuous upgrading of the military cooperation of the Republic of Cyprus and the USA in new areas of mutual interest, including training through which personnel draw valuable experience and know-how, contributing to the operational capacity of the National Guard.

The activity is part of the network of international collaborations developed by the National Guard following the guidelines of the Ministry of Defence, thus promoting interoperability and cooperation and at the same time highlighting its ever-developing relations with friendly and allied countries.
