During their year-long deployment, unit personnel completed more than 30,000 medical visits, ranging in patient care from minor aches, pains and illnesses to extremely serious battlefield injuries and trauma. More than 40,000 prescriptions were filled for patients in the 466th Medical Company facilities. U.S. Army photo by Master Sgt. Corine Lombardo. (RELEASED).
