#5 German mobile surgery unit supports soldiers in northern Afghanistan

MAIMANAH, Afghanistan — When Resolute Support forces go to remote areas in northern Afghanistan, this mobile medical team is the first in, and the last out.

"All members of this team are experts in the field,” said German Army Lt. Col. Daniel H., M.D., senior surgeon for Train, Advise, Assist Command-North (TAAC-North). "They trained in Germany for several different missions, and we are really a team of specialists. I think we are very well prepared for this mission.”

Daniel and his Damage Control Surgery (DCS) Unit colleagues are part of the 265 soldiers participating in the Expeditionary Advisory Package (EAP) mission in Maimanah, Faryab province. EAPs are one part of a multi-pronged strategy to continue increasing ANDSF capability and enable them to increasingly go on the offensive against the Taliban. RS continues to support the ANDSF through persistent embedded advising down to the kandak (battalion) level, further improving ANDSF performance and sustainability.

The DCS Unit can be fully operation capable within four hours and are equipped to conduct all the medical procedures required to save a soldier‘s life. The medical team is highly skilled in providing life-saving trauma support including surgery, staunching blood flow from wounds and replenishing lost blood. Their mission is to care for both injured RS and ANDSF personnel conducting combat operations against the Taliban and IS-K.

Thank you. He certainly dislikes German politics, but that hasn't changed his mind re his engagement. The camaraderie with the U.S. military is fantastic. He brought two friends from Ramstein with him for Christmas and we had a great time.
