Afaik, the Geneva Convention forbids to attack any medical unit, as well as impersonate medical personnel. However, in combat, I doubt the enemy would worry about differentiating between a regular soldier and another one with a medical patch in the arm...Would that be effective, though? If I were a commander, I would try to shoot all the specialists first (medics included) before engaging the riflemen and stuffBeing seen was the idea. Corpsmen were supposed to be 'exempt' from enemy fire.
Just out of curiosity, do the military medics carry these white pathes with the red cross in combat/war time? they look like if they could give possition away the position of the soldier...
