Summary
When he traded a comfortable if demanding practice in San Antonio, Texas, for a ride on a C-130 into the combat zone, Warren was already reeling from months of personal struggle. At the 332nd Air Force Theater Hospital at Joint Base Balad, Iraq, he realized his experience with trauma was just beginning. In his 120 days in a tent hospital, he was trained in a different specialty-- surviving over a hundred mortar attacks and trying desperately to repair the damages of a war that raged around every detail of every day
