I saw this on an emergency medical blog, traced it back, and felt it was important enough that it should be posted and spread:
Military Volunteers Run Burn Clinic in Iraq
Military volunteers run burn clinic in Iraq, providing "tenderness and Tylenol"
Please go check out the link, and watch the two videos.
The two videos are "about the burn clinic for children at CSC Scania in Iraq. It is operated by volunteers from the US Military and using donated medical supplies. SGT Joseph Barzeski of 3rd Squadron, 73rd Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division is the current NCOIC, but the clinic was started by 1st Battalion, 125th Field Artillery, 34th Brigade Combat Team, Minnesota National Guard. It began as a Family Practice clinic for the local Iraqis, but as time went on the medics saw more and more burn victims due to the high number of cooking and heating accidents common in Iraq."
