Must See Film
17 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was amazed to see how Terry Sanders was able to capture the essence of military medicine and present it in such a way that it is easy to understand for those without any medical or military experience. As a graduate of the Uniformed Services University (USU) medical school, it is very humbling to be associated with this film and the amazing expertise and professionalism displayed by field medics, nurses, physicians, therapists and medical evacuation staff who save and restore lives on a daily basis. Their cause is the same as all of ours

  • to provide the best care to those who are willing to lay down their


life for their country. I guarantee you will be moved by this film and gain a new appreciation for the sacrifice and courage of the more than 1 million service members who have deployed overseas.
