The video featuring Capt. Maria Irizzary posted this week is made possible by a generous grant from the Heidi Paoli Fund in loving memory of Heidi Paoli.  Capt. Irizzary tells about her tour of duty at the Abu Grahib Hospital in Iraq.  She speaks of the loss she faced and the strength she drew on, while at the same time, as an Army nurse, caring for the war wounded -- both American and Iraqi -- with equal compassion.  We thank her for sharing her story in order to help others cope with the emotional trauma of war.  Appreciation also to the VA New York Harbor Healthcare System and Mr. Ray Aalbue for cooperation in filming at the Brooklyn VA Hospital.  Most especially are we grateful to the Heidi Paoli Fund for underwriting the project and for their commitment to veterans and loved ones.
