The US military on the ground in Baghdad received high marks from both NBC and ABC. Good Morning America anchor Chris Cuomo (subscription required) found adventure while traveling with a patrol in the Ghazaliya neighborhood. His HumVee was hit by a boobytrap bomb planted under a pair of roadside corpses. "Glass showers down…this is not panic…the gunner spits out glass but never misses a beat." No one was injured. "Welcome to Baghdad!" Cuomo shook the captain's hand in thanks.
NBC's medical reporter Robert Bazell traveled to Baghdad's Green Zone to watch a Combat Support Hospital in action. He was on the scene as nine wounded soldiers from a USArmy Stryker brigade were medevaced in after a grenade attack and observed two simultaneous surgeries in a single blood-drenched theater. "I have been to hospitals throughout the United States and I have never seen anything like the bravery of the wounded troops and the intensity and dedication of these men and women who are treating them."
