Who is in Afghanistan, saving lives and easing suffering of US and Coalition casualties and injured Afghan civilians, I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the people here at the Salerno Hospital.

Lots of open fractures.

Cleaning up after the MASCAL
(Mass Casualty Event)
We’ve got all the important parts of a hospital:
Operating Room, Intensive Care Ward, X-Ray, Laboratory, Pharmacy and even a CT scanner, but we're still in tents with wooden floors. The FOB itself is still very primitive. On our FOB there are no paved streets. When it rains, it floods. The hospital floods, the streets flood, the gym floods.
If you wear your rubber boots, you’re fine. Otherwise, you get wet feet.
So there it is, a peek inside our facility,
a peek at our people and our home.
(I thought it would be interesting to all who have followed this blog for the past eight months.)
for reading and praying and caring.
for remembering the Soldiers in Afghanistan, the “other” war.
