Having just received multiple patients from an insurgent attack in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq, the sailors and Marines of Taqaddum Surgical had their hands full. Petty Officer 3rd Class Joshua W. Bromley and Petty Officer 3rd Class Jesse K. Bolstad, corpsmen with the unit, take a breather during treatment as other medical personnel continue working on the injured service members. Bromley, a 24-year old native of Gosnell, Ark.; Bolstad, a 32-year-old native of Spokane, Wash., and Taqaddum Surgical handle the duties of both a shock trauma platoon and a forward resuscitative surgical suite here, which are essentially makeshift emergency and operating rooms, respectively. When a service member is injured in battle in the Al Anbar Province, he receives specialized resuscitative care from the STP, with surgical care provided by the FRSS. More extensive care is provided at one of the Combat Army Surgical Hospitals in Baghdad or Balad
