Triage is the process of prioritizing medical care when resources are not available to treat all patients equally. Medics and doctors on Omaha Beach had little in the way of supplies in order to treat wounded, and in many cases had to suffice with little more than sulfa powder, morphine and bandages.


An example of triage is seen during the Omaha Beach sequence when a senior medical officer instructs Medic Wade on which soldiers should and should not be treated.
