Hi, Since I'm messing with the blog settings, you might end up getting the posts twice. If you are getting spammed from me, let me know and I'll try to fix it. (By the way, this means I'm officially old and can't figure out the young peoples' latest gadgets and gizmos.)
Meredith and I will run the Marine Corps Marathon this fall as part of Team Fisher House. We will be raising money to support the Fisher Houses, homes away from home for families of injured troops undergoing treatment at military medical centers.
Thank you for visiting. I am Chris Coppola, a pediatric surgeon. I was deployed to Iraq in 2005 and 2007 with the US Air Force. As a trauma surgeon at a combat support hospital in Balad, Iraq (42 miles north of Baghdad), I treated injured troops, detainees, civilians, and children. My experiences are published by NTI Upstream. Drop by here for updates and discussions about our troops and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
