Leading military contractor abuses animals and service members

i Jun 10th by

New disturbing information has surfaced about horrific animal abuse at Deployment Medicine International (DMI), a military trauma training contractor. For all the info, see the details at all-creatures.org.

Deployment Medicine International (DMI), the self-proclaimed “largest trainer of US military forces in operational medicine,” is the subject of an exposé by PETA, in which thousands of live animals are violently shot, stabbed, dismembered and killed each year.

Eyewitness video footage released by PETA and related documents reveal shocking abuse of animals, racism, homophobia, sexism and reported physical and sexual assault of military service members by a leading military training contractor.

The investigation documented a training course attended by members of the Navy, Air Force and civilians led by DMI. In the eyewitness video, instructors shot and cut up live pigs for disgusting “training” exercises.

One DMI instructor told students that Muslims “would be even better” than using pigs for the training. Other DMI staff made inappropriate sexual and homophobic remarks to the students during the course.

The Virginia Board of Medicine recently suspended the medical license of DMI’s president for his alleged sexual assault and other physical abuse of service members.

Shooting, stabbing, and otherwise maiming animals is an ineffective and crude way to teach human medicine. Please speak up.

Action:

Tell your Congressional Representatives to SUPPORT the Battlefield Excellence through Superior Training (BEST) Practices Act (S. 587/H.R. 1095) which will finally end the use of animals in crude military training courses.
