The Art of War
For much of his life, pediatric surgeon Tim Weiner had never considered serving in the military. That changed when he turned 50 and realized that his skills as a surgeon could help injured soldiers and civilians overseas.
When acute care surgeon Amy Alger learned about the shortage of trauma care available to injured soldiers as they left the battlefield, she felt compelled to join the army. She has since been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, and the experiences have not only challenged her medical skills - they have broadened her perspectives on the military and life.
