Landstuhl RMC – the Australian connection.

Landstuhl Regional Medical Centre is operated by the United States Army. But many Australian soldiers wounded in Afghanistan have also been treated there – and have become very popular among the staff, as the article below describes.

This item ran in Perth’s daily paper The West Australian back in January. I’ve been waiting for it to appear on the net, but so far, no sign. Anyhow, a big thank you to everyone at Landstuhl for the work you do with our soldiers.

BONUS PIX! Once they’re fit for travel, wounded Diggers are flown home in an RAAF C17 Globemaster which is rigged up like a hospital ward. And our Defence Department, in a rare example of PR nous, has an excellent gallery here of the plane’s medical staff in action.

Nurse Katie Whitehouse tends mid-flight to one of the Diggers wounded in Kandahar province October 2011, when an Afghan soldier opened fire on Australian troops

I wonder if it’s possible to send Christmas parcels to Australian troops at Landstuhl? That might be a question for the team at OSK.


  1. Could be wrong but, I believe the best solution to wounded and dead Diggers, American and NATO troops, is to leave those islamies alone to kill each other to their hearts content. Goes for Pakistan, or any area that claim(s) an allegiance to an allah/muhammad as well. (I don’t give two damns what the Russian and Chinese islamies do to, Russia and China)

    Once we in the states shed our Narcissus supreme, who seems to have a fondness for islamies and issue one final stern warning, that ANY terror activities, outside of their own fecal lands, that there WILL BE a destructive force heaped upon them to make their lands look similar to the Nambung National Park and American Desert Southwest. Well, except for the radioactivity.

  2. If only they were content just to kill each other.
    Thunderdome Supreme! Ten thousand madmen go in, and nobody comes out!
