Dr. Kirk Milhoan spent two tours in Iraq during 2005 and 2007. He served as a flight surgeon at Balad Air Base Iraq where he cared for hundreds of wounded soldiers and prepared them for air evacuation. This book is a collection of essays he wrote during his deployments in which he honestly shares his thoughts, emotions, and frustrations of being a Christian military physician in harms way. He also shares what God taught him as he sought to apply Gods Living word to his daily life in a war zone. In vivid imagery, he allows you to walk with him in the intensive care units, you are taken aboard a Blackhawk Helicopter to transfer the wounded enemy. You will have a chance to cry with him as he describes the very best and worst acts of men and what happens to children when they are caught in between. Kirk A.
