    I think its great that medical care is being provided not only to our soldiers but to the local population as well. Giving the ill and injured compassionate care as well as the babies and children can only be a positive for our mission. The Taliban is not providing this. As a mother I would think highly of the side helping me care for my child rather than the side who is disrupting my life and wanting to limit my freedoms. You win hearts and minds with this kind of outreach.

    I watched it. I was glad to see that our men were getting the best medical care possible under the circumstances. I also thought it was extremely important that our medical facilities are being made available to the Afghans. That should be a vital part of the whole mission, improving medical care, jobs, housing and education for the local population, and letting them run things–as long as the Marines make sure that any aid we provide actually gets down to the grassroots levels, to the people who need it most.
