Monday Medly ~
I thought I would start the week off with an assortment of good news stories. Refresh our batteries, so to speak. I have the impression that things are going to get a bit uglier as the debate in Iraq continues, the anti-war groups ramp up their nonsense as more good news comes out of Iraq and Afghanistan and the presidential candidates try to draw blood as we get closer to the primaries.
But today, let’s give a look at how our troops are doing in other places besides Iraq:
Surgical team members Maj. (Dr.) Christopher Dress, Maj. (Dr.) Dmitry Tuder and Airman 1st Class Angelia Sneed perform a free-flap operation on a 9-year-old girl suffering from a badly mangled leg.
Hospitalman Brian Robinson removes a blood pressure cuff from a local resident at Modilon General Hospital.
