Thoughts from the Cradle
Dr. Kirk Milhoan spent two tours in Iraq during 2005 and 2007. He served as a flight surgeon at Balad Air Base Iraq where he cared for hundreds of wounded soldiers and prepared them for air evacuation. This book is a collection of essays he wrote during his deployments in which he honestly shares his thoughts, emotions, and frustrations of being a Christian military physician in harms way. He also shares what God taught him as he sought to apply Gods Living word to his daily life in a war zone. In vivid imagery, he allows you to walk with him in the intensive care units, you are taken aboard a Blackhawk Helicopter to transfer the wounded enemy. You will have a chance to cry with him as he describes the very best and worst acts of men and what happens to children when they are caught in between. Kirk A. Milhoan, became a Christian through the ministry of Youth for Christ when he was 15. He received a double major in Biology and Chemistry from Point Loma Nazarene University in 1986, a PhD from University of California at San Diego in: Cardiovascular Physiology and Pharmacology in 1991. He entered Jefferson Medical College in 1992 and received his MD in 1996. In 2002, he completed his medical training after finishing his fellowship in Pediatric Cardiology at UCSD/ Childrens Hospital of San Diego. Since then he has been serving as a pediatric cardiologist and flight surgeon with the United States Air Force. His passion is sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ through word and deed and together with his wife Dr. Kimberly Milhoan started an organization, For Hearts and Souls, which is dedicated to sharing Christs love through medical outreach.
