i mean the Germans were known to usually respect the medics if they saw the red cross symbol but a lot of time the medic would not even wear the symbol & in the Pacific theater the Japanese would purposely target Medics with the red cross symbol to demoralize them and stop them from being able to tend to the troops that required medical attention .. The USA would allow their medics in cases to carry small arms to protect their wounded as well .. So you are right a little bit but wrong as well . so relax dudey cakes

@Lt.Dan

The treaties that protect medics are based on the condition that they be non-combatants. However, medics and medical units are permitted to have small arms for the defense of their patients and medical assets against actual enemy attack.

So, a medic can carry a weapon without violating the treaty, BUT in practice that forfeits the protection of the medic armband/helmet marking. An enemy soldier who shot an armed medic would probably have little trouble beating a war-crimes charge.

That is especially true because armed medics rarely wear the armband. As other respondents have noted, most of the people the U.S. has fought in the past century do not respect the armband and will shoot a medic as readily as any other soldier. So any medic who feels the need to carry a weapon is likely to feel the need to not wear the armband or other medic insignia.

@Lt.Dan hey Shitdick u should maybe read the Geneva Convention medics are allowed to carry weapons to defend them selves and their patients but once the use their weapon in an offensive action they immediately forfeit their protection under the Geneva Convention and thus they can be shot and kill by the enemy without the enemy facing the charge of a war crime
