Petty Officer 2nd Class James Jenkins (left), 28, from Lees Summit, Miss., a corpsman with 1st Marine Logistics Group (Forward), is one of three corpsmen who run the Wounded Warrior facility at Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan. The facility, comprised of several large berthing tents and a lounge located just 50-feet from the medical clinic, allows corpsmen to monitor outpatient care for service members with minor war wounds so they can heal and get back to their units. Of the nearly 250 injured service members who have passed through Wounded Warrior, more than 80 percent of them have returned to their units. ‘Spending a lot of time with them every single day, you do make a lot of good friends,’ said Jenkins of the Marines who pass through Wounded Warrior.
