    Anybody have any first hand experience on what to expect here? Searched the forum and didn't see much. Just got "voluntold" IA orders to an embedded medical training team at a regional hospital in Afghanistan for the next 14 months. :eek::confused:

    Don't get too worried. The biggest issue you will need to deal with is logistics. Where do they get resupply? You won't change how they practice medicine (nor should you really, Afghan good will be good enough for them) but they have big problems getting stuff.
