Karen Army Mission - Myanmar (Burma) - 2012

I was invited to go on this austere mission because of a previous mission to Costa Rica and Nicaragua by some former Special Forces friends. This trip was into Myanmar (Burma) along the Thai border to present the fourth phase of a field medial program created by a former Green Beret who is also a Physicians Assistant (PA). The program would be delivered at great risk to the Karen tribe medics who run field clinics and provide combat medicine deep inside of the jungle.
