Picture Of The Day - 13 AUG 2010 "House Call"

13 AUG 2010 - House Call (Photo by: CPT T)
CPT T continues to show us the Afghanistan "outside the wire". Here, we see a 173d Airborne medic treating the men (and children) of a village during a village medical operation (VMOP) in Logar, Afghanistan. The scene is wonderful, and reminds me of how a doctor of the 1800s or early 1900s in America might have seen his patients. And although this medic has little at his disposal, he has vastly more "real" medicine than a physician had in the beginning of the 20th century.
