Daniel Gruver, an optometrist assigned to the Schofield Barracks Health Clinic, conducts an eye examination for a local resident during the third day of a Medical Readiness Training Exercise in the Bac Ninh province of Vietnam, July 11. This is the first bilateral Medical Readiness Exercise, co-hosted by Vietnam and the United States, and is intended to improve medical interoperability between the Military Medical Department of Vietnamese People's Army (MMD) and USARPAC, provide experience and education for medical operations in harsh environments, unfamiliar culture, and unusual diseases with austere support; and provide humanitarian assistance. The MEDRETE is scheduled to end July 15.
