CLEAR ALL

The sailors and Marines of Taqaddum Surgical must be prepared for any task such as escorting injured U.S. and Iraqi troops to waiting helicopters when a mass casualty incident occurs. Petty Officer 3rd Class Jesse K. Bolstad, a 32-year-old native of Spokane, Wash., holds on tightly as the ambulance he is in prepares to leave Taqaddum Surgical. The staff of Taqaddum Surgical, the main facility of its kind in the region, treated several soldiers of the Iraqi Army after a recent insurgent attack. The Iraqi unit had several wounded in the attack that also hit two American service members attached to its Military Transition Team. Taqaddum Surgical is classified as a surgical shock trauma platoon because it has two main elements: a shock trauma platoon, which serves as an emergency room, and a forward resuscitative surgical suite â?? a battlefield operating room. The MTT is a small group of American military personnel tasked with training and advising the Iraqi soldiers as they take control of their country. - The sailors and Marines of Taqaddum Surgical must be prepared for any task such as escorting injured U.S. and Iraqi troops to waiting helicopters when a mass casualty incident occurs.

After a recent insurgent attack in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq, Army Capt. Leyland C. Torres, 2nd Battalion, 130th Infantry Regimentâ??s adjutant, does his share to aid a fellow service member heâ??s never met, donating blood at Camp Taqaddumâ??s main surgical facility. Often, service members such as Torres, a 32-year-old native of Oak Forest, Ill., will show up within five minutes of the request going out, said Cmdr. Richard L. Schroff, the officer in charge of Taqaddum Surgical. Since taking over the facility March 3, Schroff, a 43-year-old native of Carrollton, Va., and his unit have used the emergency blood donation system seven times, including a stretch of four out of five days recently. Taqaddum Surgical handles the duties of both a shock trauma platoon and a forward resuscitative surgical suite, which are essentially makeshift emergency and operating rooms. When a service member is injured in battle, he receives specialized resuscitative treatment from the STP, with surgery provided by the FRSS. More extensive care is provided at one of the Combat Army Surgical Hospitals in Baghdad or Balad. - After a recent insurgent attack in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq, Army Capt. Leyland C.
