Behind the 14-foot blast wall surrounded in razor wire, Dr. Jim Froehlich heard the “not-so-distant” sounds of a mortar attack at a hospital near Mosul, Iraq. Not long after, an ambulance arrived with women and children injured in the attack. “I started working within the hour when I got to the hospital,” Froehlich said.
