We've got a reporter from Stars and Stripes with us for a few days.

Such simple words from Phillips, but what a story.

The story of our warriors and the treatment they receive at FOB Salerno Hospital is nothing new to anyone at Richard's Deployment to Afghanistan. Afghan Nationals receiving the same great treatment, and the their gratitude, again is nothing new to the reader's of Phillips' blog.

But it is gratifying to see it recognized by Stars and Stripes.

You can contact Bryan Mitchell, Stars and Stripes to thank him for the article: . --Haole--

Spc. Jeffrey Ellis on Wednesday holds up a piece of shrapnel that hit him in a suicide bomber attack the previous day. It was removed from his body but he's expected to receive further care in Germany.
