Medical School Opens In Ramadi
There is a new medical facility that has opened in Ramadi. The new medical facility is a clinic, but also a University teaching facility, for instruction of new doctors and medical staff.
The soldiers are working hard, and they know that their assistance is valued. They have been there, some of them have suffered wounds on the battlefield, and they know the importance of having blood and other support when their comrades and Iraqi security forces are injured. One day a call for blood of B Positive type came in, and the medical staff rushed around gathering people to donate, and as normal the members of the forward operating bases in and around Ramadi stepped up. They are only too glad to participate and help.
The doctors work to provide damage control and to save lives, and they are pleased to receive the blood and support from the soldiers of the line. The soldiers are enthusiastic about helping and they give support in ways that only other soldiers can understand.
Servicemembers are always willing to assist in giving blood, but in a battlefield situation the need for blood can be even more intense. The soldiers around the village of Ramadi are vigilant, and have helped give the Ramadi Village a reputation for a walking blood bank.
The new training facility will work to secure the personnel in the region and keep them safe, as well as teaching doctors about battlefield medicine. Because of their involvement, a soldier was saved that was injured by an IED. This is the type of training and surgical response that will take place.
