Special Forces clinic treats Afghan citizens

Sgt. Frank Magni

17th Public Affairs Detachment

KONAR PROVINCE, Afghanistan – For many in Afghanistan, access to proper medical care is very limited. A lack of medical training and equipment within community clinics has prompted Coalition forces to send their own medical personnel into communities to assist.

But in Konar Province, medical civilian aid projects are also being supplemented with an unconventional approach. The same clinic that treats Coalition forces at this Special Forces A-camp leaves its doors open for Afghan citizens, as well.

The clinic -- made up of a doctor, Special Forces medics, Navy and Marine corpsmen and interpreters -- treats more than 100 patients a day. Open five days a week for sick call, the medics also stay on call around the clock for emergency care, either for military members or Afghans.

These same kinds of activities were carried out on a massive scale in Vietnam, but you didn't here John Kerry testify before Congress about the medical services rendered by the US throughout S. Vietnam. He just assembled a group of liars and repeated their lies into the Congressional Record.
