Remembering the fallen heroes

Remembering the fallen heroes on Memorial Day 2012 in Afghanistan.

The LTC with the message on her back honoring SFC Brian Woods has been a combat surgeon for 20 years. She is currently part of a FST (Forward Surgical Team) in Afghanistan. One can only imagine how many wounded soldiers and civilians she has treated in her years as a combat surgeon and how each left an impression on her that she carries with her every day.

Our MEDEVAC and medical personnel are the best in the world and offer the best care possible for our wounded.  They have jobs that subject them daily to physical and emotional stress beyond what most of us could imagine. Say a prayer of thanks and protection for them.

This is an interesting blog written by a surgeon about life on a FOB in Afghanistan as part of a Forward Surgical Team. Check it out.
