A MILITARY DOCTOR
By Capt. Steven Ellison, MD
This should be required reading in every school and college in our country. This Captain, an Army doctor, deserves a medal himself for putting this together. If you choose not to pass it on, fine, but I think you will want to, after you read it.

I am a doctor specializing in the Emergency Departments of the only twomilitary Level One-Trauma Centers, both in San Antonio, TX and theycare for civilian Emergencies as well as military personnel.SanAntonio has the largest military retiree populationin the world livinghere.As a military doctor, I work long hours and the pay is less thanglamorous.One tends to become jaded by the long hours, lack of sleep,food, family contact and the endless parade of human suffering passingbefore you.The arrival of another ambulance does not mean more pay,only more work.Most often, it is a victim from a motor vehicle crash.
 
Often it is a person of dubious character who has been shot or stabbed.With our large military retiree population, it is often a nursing homepatient.Even with my enlisted service and minimal combat experiencein Panama, I have caught myself groaning when the ambulance broughtin yet another sick, elderly person from one of the local retirementcenters that cater to militaryretirees.I had not stopped to think of whatcitizens of this age group represented.

CAPT. Steven R. Ellison, M.D. US Army , Very inspiring for sure and such a nice posting. A older than me Vet sent me the link and what a positive/dedicated writing about a Fine Military Member. No doubt your GI Buddies and Vets will always remember you and how you respected and served so many people during your military career. I still remember a Navy Dentist that did some of my dental works abo
