U.S. military hospital in Germany treats thousands

  TWIG - Some 21,000 U.S. soldiers have been treated at the U.S. Army's Landstuhl Regional Medical Hospital near the southwestern German city of Kaiserslautern since the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, officials said this week.

Landstuhl — the largest military hospital outside the United States — has treated 17,878 U.S. servicemen and -women wounded in Iraq and 3,085 wounded in Afghanistan, hospital officials told the Associated Press.

With all the technology of a major urban medical center back home, Landstuhl has an array of specialists unrivalled by any other American hospital abroad.

Since 1980, the doctors there have treated American soldiers wounded in Iran, Beirut, Sarajevo, Desert Storm, Bosnia, Kosovo, Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Afghanistan and the USS Cole.
