Greetings from the METT, Herat, Afghanistan

That's the Medical Embedded Training Team at Camp Stone near Herat in western Afghanistan. Herat is the third largest city in Afghanistan after Kabul and Kandahar. Herat traditionally has been the more peaceful and prosperous part of the country due to its proximity to the more stable country of Iran. The local language is Dari, quite similar to the Iranian Farsi. We arrived summer of 2007 and have mentored the physicians and staff at the Herat Regional Military Hospital. We are enthusiastic supporters of the OML project and are distributing the medical literature to the military hospital, city hospital, maternity hospital, eye hospital and medical school here and in the city of Herat. Thanks to everyone for your support!

Hi Bruce,

What a great photo! Everyone is smiling! I guess they don't know about all of the heavy medical textbooks that they are going to have to help transport!

A million thanks for all that you are doing for OML and the medical community of Herat! If you ever come to Los Angeles, I owe you a beverage of your choice!
