AF medics treat Afghan war’s smallest casualties

Three-year-old Jaal Bibi clings to Senior Airman Zarai Alvarez, a medic deployed from Keesler Air Force Base, Miss., at the Craig Joint Theater Hospital at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan . Jaal fell and impaled herself in the eye on a stick while playing. While the CJTH often treats children wounded by war, they also treat accidents that can cause complicated wounds.
