I’m a Doc serving with a line platoon of combat engineers who hunt IEDs. My platoon and I were deployed to Marjeh, Garsmir, Nawa and Trek Nawa in helmand province. Our platoon consisted of 28 marines, 1 Navy Corpsman(myself) and 3 EOD tech from the airforce. Our job was to enhance the mobility and countermobility in our Area of Operation by finding and minimizing the ever present IED threat. I was attached to my platoon full of combat engineers as a Navy Corpsman, to provide threatening and non-threatening medical care. We found our fair share of IEDs, but unfortunately also hit a few on the way. Currently my guys are deployed again and just closed Sangin and are kicking ass! Engineers lead the way.
