Description

"Pediatrician Soldier" tells Garbarino's amazing true story of how he left the safety and security of a successful medical practice to enter a combat zone. Experience a different side of war-the human side-with this deeply emotional first hand account of this pediatrician's oversees deployment for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Compassionate and powerful, this book reveals this children's physician incredible dedication and devotion to caring for our troops, who he describes as just 'big kids', using humor, empathy and love. Get to know two soldiers - one fallen, Captain John J. McKenna killed by sniper fire while leading his soldiers during a mission - and - one forever traumatized, Sgt. Daniel Tallouzi who because of a small piece of shrapnel from a mortar attack returned in an "eyes open" coma. Feel for those family members who don't know if their loved ones will return in a box, disabled or forever changed. Remembering past wars, look into the future and never forget tomorrow's children.
