Program Title: "FOB DOC" A doctor on the front lines in Afghanistan
Description: Royalties from FOB Doc will be donated to the Military Families Fund, which was created by former chief of the defence staff General Rick Hillier to assist military families.

Book excerpt: "We had sent out a patrol in light armoured vehicles, and they hit an IED on their way back to the fob. Some of our men were severely wounded and landed on my medics and me within fifteen minutes of being hit. Forewarned of the seriousness of the injuries, we called for the MEDEVAC chopper before the wounded men got to the fob.

Host(s): Brent Holland
Featured Speakers/Guests: Since returning from Afghanistan, Dr. Wiss has continued to teach nationally and internationally, and re-joined the team at the Sudbury Regional Hospital Emergency Department. He lives in Sudbury with his wife Claude and their four-year-old daughter, Michelle.
