The front line medical services based at Camp Bastion assist everybody – from ISAF troops to Afghan troops and local Afghans.

The link from the battlefield to the hospital at Camp Bastion is the most vital, as it could mean the difference between life and death.

    I appreciate the Front Lines Medical Service for his humanitarian and medical scientific duty, on a reality that differ to a medical civil service and act on a specific field, that require a specific preparation and a high resilience.
    I honor and thank, by the profound of my heart, this equipe.
