After being on the receiving end of more than 126 mortar rounds over the course of her deployment, Captain Curtis became accustomed to this hazardous way of life.
One night, the mortars hit her encampment. “Rockets were shot and landed right in the middle of our compound,” she said. “There was a lot of shrapnel wounds. People were unconscious”. Because the camp was on lockdown, Curtis was the only medic on the scene for the first 20 minutes of the attack. She didn’t have much time to think.
These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero.
