A Nurse's Perspective on Iraq

First Lutentant Rachel Grover has been serving as a nurse in Iraq since the beginning of December. On leave for two weeks Rachel is relaxing with family and friends. But she talks about how the injuries to soldiers have gone from bullet wounds to something worse.

IED Injuries...shrapnel wounds a lot of burns and amputations stuff like that

Both bullets and IEDs can take a soldiers life but Rachel says IEDs leave a deeper scar in her psyche than do bullet wounds.

These poor young boys most of them 18, 19, 20 years old out there getting blown up. And they come in and you see pictures of their families falling out of there just makes you angry.
