The exercise was complete with bloody actors and cadets in full uniform.

"In a combat situation you always want to save the man next to you," said cadet Wyatt Burton.
 
"We work as a team how to um treat patients and how to get them out of there as fast as we could," said cadet Stephan Kepczk.

More than 100 cadets from all over the United States came together to take part in the mass casualty disaster dramatization.
