21 FEB 2008 Balad continues to help children
I found this sad story about Iraqi children who came under mortar fire while they were playing soccer. Though nothing could be done for the boy who was killed, but the ones who survived received state of the art treatment at the Air Force Theater Hospital. It is a foul act of the insurgency that in an incompetent attack against the base they only achieved the death and injury of children. It is fortunate for the children that the skill of vascular surgeon T. and the rest of the crew was there for them.
I look forward to a day of peace.
