“Inspiring change” sounds like a good excuse, doesn’t it? Even though in special operations excuses are generally unacceptable, let alone welcome, I sheepishly hope, you won’t take ours as lame.
We haven’t been posting on this blog… Our vimeo channel got covered in dust and our social media venues ( i.e. Facebook and Twitter) have long disappeared of anyone’s radar… Yet, behind the scenes we’ve been working hard to empower the SOF Medics on the Old Continent. We’ve been sharing the advances of U.S. SOF medicine, and dedicating our time to inspire a paradigm shift in the special operations circles on the Eastern side of the Big Pond.
This is how we got to design the #empowerSOFmedic campaign and celebrate our first #EuropeanSOMA at the POLSOCC HQ (Polish Special Operations Component Command) in Kraków (Poland)! Our friends at JSOM have covered it in their newsletter, and SOMA leaders (Special Operations Medical Association) have spread the word for us at the #SOMSA18 in Charlotte.
There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that SOFmed Poland 2018 was an incredibly successful event, which cannot be easily forgotten. Created by our SOFsono Team, it worked out better than we have ever hoped for – even the Gods of Weather cooperated with us! Yet rest assured that SOFmed Poland 2019 is going to be way better and more meaningful. Yes, we know that the enemy of good is better, but this kind of “better” is actually a much needed and greatly desired step forward in EU SOF medicine. So stay tuned!
Now… Having spelled out our extraordinary excuses (far from BS, right?) we are finally playing catch-up and hoping for forgiveness. After an extreme graphic makeover, we are back “in business” – doing what we do best – that is saving SOF Medics NATO-wide from death by power-point bullets in #SOFmed education. We’ve got a cure for that! As a matter of fact, it is the most easily preventable death in SOF medicine ;-).
