focused on military operations, and the impact on daily life has
often been forgotten. In that war-torn nation, the medical system
is a shambles, and the need for orthotics and prosthetics is
rapidly rising. While most military attention has been focused on
the war effort, one US Army captain in Baghdad turned his attention
to helping Iraqi citizens receive the orthotic and prosthetic care
they so desperately need.
