On Veterans Day, chief of pediatric neurosurgery reflects on service and how it impacts his work

On Veterans Day 2014, Grant is reflecting on his service to our country and how it impacts his lifesaving care for kids. In 2005, at the height of the Iraq war, Grant was one of 18 U.S. Air Force and Army surgeons in a tent hospital at Balad Air base, the largest U.S. military base in Iraq. Located outside Balad in the Sunni Triangle, the base housed the Air Force Theater Hospital, a level 1 trauma center.
