    Cdr. Richard Jadick's story is one of the most extraordinary to come out of the war in Iraq. At 38, the last place the Navy doctor was expected to be was on the front lines. He was too old to be called up, but not too old to volunteer. In November 2004, with the military reeling from an acute doctor shortage, Jadick chose to accompany the First Battalion, Eighth Marine Regiment (the "1/8") to Iraq.

    Story
    What did you love best about On Call in Hell?

    It made me think that I was right there in the battle with the guys in Iraq. I could envision the terror and also the calm that these men faced.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of On Call in Hell?

    When they were going after their comrades and how they managed to get them out of the area with out getting killed or hurt themselves.


    What about Lloyd James’s performance did you like?

    His narration helped me to feel like I was right there in the battle with this Doctor and right beside him as he cared for the men that he had grown to love.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the surgeon went out into the battle with the men to help save his fellow soldiers.


    Any additional comments?

    A great book for any health care professional to read. It tells of the dangers, heartaches when you lose a fellow healthcare professional, and the comraderie that you can have when everyone is "shooting" for the same goal.
