Does anyone know what the level of acuity in Iraq is? Are there a lot of sick/injured patients or is it relatively few? Also, I assume there are huge variations depending on where in Iraq a doc is stationed.

For a surgeon, feast or famine, depending where you are. One of my friends was stationed for 5 months and did 3 surgical cases, including an appy.

Others, like at Balad, are busy doing wound debridments, amongst other things I's sure.

How's Germany (the one that starts with an "L" that I won't even try to spell)? At NNMC and TAMC, I saw a lot of trauma come back with fairly extensive work done on them already. I kind of pictured that place as trauma central.
