The Steele Challenge, Aug. 9-10, 2012, was the capstone event of Cadet Basic Training for the Class of 2016 as they prepare to enter the Corps of Cadets. The Tactical Casualty Combat Care and radio communication site demonstrated their ability to repel an ambush while providing medical assistance and exfiltration of casualties. This was a test of the basic premise of soldiering, "never leave a fallen comrade behind," and required them to call in a medical evacuation report after moving the treated casualties to a rally point.
