Hospital sees more GIs from Afghan frontline

‘We’ve seen a lot ... and I hope we can handle it,’ says one staffer

This is a very difficult video to watch, with some graphic footage of war-time injuries
but it is valuable to see just what our medics and the soldiers who are injured experience.

The task force hospital at Bagram has been one of our main recipient of Soldiers' Angels support for over three years, and we've increased that support dramatically this year. Soldiers' Angels is sending over 200 First Response backpacks there every month now, and trying to help the medics any way we can.


Doctors at Bagram say there is nowhere in the world — except other war zones — where physicians face such severe wounds day after day. That constant stream takes a toll.
