ABSTRACT
A startling figure from the continuing conflict in Iraq is that combat casualties are just 11 percent of the total medical cases that have to be evacuated to Germany or the U.S. A single facility at Ramstein AB, had processed more than 10,000 cases by middle-January. A Texas Air National Guard C-130 flying from a medical collection center at Balad AB to Baghdad International Airport carried two victims of an explosive device triggered near their vehicle. The other 18 patients were on board for reasons that included lifting injuries, falls, sports accidents and leishmaniasis.
