Battlefield acupuncture: Old practice, new practitioners

First Lt. Robert Blume, the physician assistant for 1st Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team "Rakkasans," 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), inserts a thin gold needle through a U.S. civilian contractor’s ear during a battlefield acupuncture session on Combat Outpost Champkani, Afghanistan, Jan. 27, 2013. Acupuncture is based on piercing certain areas of the body with thin needles to possibly alleviate pain and stress. (U.S. photo by Spc. Brian Smith-Dutton Task Force 3/101 Public Affairs)
