Abstract:

From Dust Jacket: The proud tradition of caring for wounded American fighting forces goes back to the founding of our nation. Advances in medical knowledge, equipment, training, and evolving military doctrine do not change one thing: there must be medical personnel ready to care for their fallen comrades. From Yorktown to Gettysburg, at Belleau Wood and Midway, in the freezing Korean winters and the sweltering jungles of Vietnam, our military medical personnel have been on the battlefield to save their buddies. While often we focus on the elaborate technologies, the dramatic helicopter rescues, or the new medicines, it is the people that make every single thing happen. Today's military medical personnel in Iraq, Afghanistan, and around the world are upholding that long, proud tradition of caring and sacrifice for their fellow comrades in arms, risking and even losing their own lives. This book is their story.
