Cmdr. Deana J. Miller, family practitioner, Taqaddum Surgical, 1st Maintenance Battalion (-) (Reinforced), 1st Marine Logistics Group, sees to the ailments of two Iraqi children here Dec. 20. Miller, 41, Temecula, Calif., was one of a few doctors present for the clinic?s ribbon cutting ceremony and subsequent medical engagement. The new Kabani Medical Clinic provides a venue for future medical engagements and Iraqi doctors to use to treat Kabani?s population. Engaging with the populace is critically important to mission accomplishment in Iraq, said Margraf. Kabani, a small village just east of Camp Taqaddum, used to host civil affairs engagements and visits from their own Iraqi medical practitioners in whatever structures they had available. Through a combination of diplomatic action from Iraqi and Coalition Forces, the village now has a necessary venue for health care. The combined medical engagement was one of many 1st MLG has performed since taking over for 2nd MLG in February of this year. The new clinic in Kabani marks the first of many recent steps toward improvements of Iraqi infrastructure.
