Why we do it.....
This is the Hero's Highway, which leads to the E/R at the Balad/Anaconda Main Base Hospital. Every wounded soldier who arrives at the hospital comes through here.
"I work in the front line E/R smack dab in the middle of the sunni triangle. We barely have time to breathe. Not only do we take care of our fellow soldiers, but we take care of anyone that comes into our E/R via blackhawk copter, ambulance, humvee or being carried on the shoulder of their battle buddy.
Thank you for all the support you have given the troops around the world . It's nice to know that America still knows that their is a war going on and are willing to donate their time and money to help us get through this with a little love from you all. Thanks - SrA Darenda S."
