Iraqis, Coalition Forces Work Together to Provide Health Care for Tunis Residents
This item updates item 'No title'

FORWARD OPERATING BASE KALSU — Tunis is an example that Iraqis are not only ready to secure their towns, but take care of the physical needs of their own people.
The city recently celebrated the opening of a renovated health clinic near Iskandariyah. The Tunis Health Clinic will have the ability to provide health care to more than 5,000 citizens in the Tunis region.

Damaged by anti-Iraqi forces, the previous Tunis Health Clinic slipped into a state of disrepair and disuse. After local town officials came together through council meetings, the city decided the clinic was in need of repair. A reconstruction project was proposed to provide essential health services for the local citizens.

“The purpose was to have a clinic in town, instead of having to go all the way to Haswa,” said Capt. James Browning, commander of Company A, 2nd Battalion, 69th Armor, 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team
