    Military Medicine

    Thanks for the moving post, Just_A_Mom. Heartbreaking for the family, and here's a shoutout for all those military healthcare providers who go in harm's way to care for their brothers and sisters in arms. In all all-volunteer force, these dedicated folks could have easily chosen to stay safe in civilian medicine -- but they didn't.
    Any of the young'uns on here who are thinking about military medicine, it's not just base hospital assignments, it's battlefield medicine.
