Lecture: Out of the Crucible: How the US Military Transformed Combat Casualty Care in Iraq and Afghanistan

When: Thu., June 9, 6-7 p.m. 2022

During Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, the nation’s military health system completely transformed its approach to combat casualty care, and, in doing so, achieved the highest rate of casualty survival in the history of warfare. Thousands of service members who would have died in earlier wars are alive today because of these advances. Tens of thousands more with severe injuries were able to recover substantial function and lead fulfilling lives thanks to the implementation of rapidly devised new techniques and technologies throughout the armed forces.
