Wow… it’s a comedy video about the worthlessness of alternative medicine. The Military setting is to up the humor level….
But yes, they are…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J1o898P_baA This is just one example of alternative medicine in the military.
So it’s not pointless…
Wait why would you think it’s pointless otherwise?
Oh Dammit, it seems that some military base hospitals are offering acupuncture; but not in place of real medical treatment - and definitly not in the field. I thought the video was too surreal to make any valid satirical point.
