Dr. Kruyer, The Soldier:
Dr. Kruyer served one year in Kuwait and Iraq. During her stay, she experienced sandstorms, pnemonia, scorpions, camel spiders, IED's, Mortar Fire, and extreme heat (150f++... and we thought Vegas was hot!). She practiced dentistry in primitive conditions - including surgical extraction of bony-impacted wisdom teeth - using a portable dental chair. Dr. Kruyer said her most lasting memories of Iraq are of the people, especially the children.
