I had the privilege of serving during the initial phases of Operation Iraqi Freedom as an orthopedic surgeon in a U. S. Army Forward Surgical Team. We traveled at the front with various brigades treating, not only wounded coalition forces, but Iraqi civilians, soldiers, Republican and Special Republican Guard, as well as Fedayeen terrorists. Initially, we treated the wounded in our canvas surgical tent. As the war progressed, we made unescorted humanitarian missions to homes, villages, hospitals, and camps. We got to know the people of Iraq on a very unique and personal level.  My photographs tell the story of what I saw, which is much different that what generally was portrayed in the American media.
 
People are people the world over.  Most people just want to wake up in the morning and have a normal day with their loved ones.  Essential to realization of that universal desire is freedom.  It is not human nature to live oppressed in any form, whether by an abusive individual or a totalitarian regime. I saw hope in the smiling faces of most Iraqi people we met, even in many of those who had lost loved ones.  
 
 
 
Captain Moore recovers a pregnant Iraqi Shia woman from surgery.  She had been shot through the abdomen by Iraqi Sunni forces.  I did not see it at the time, but the light reflecting off the desert sand though the elevated sides of the tent created a presence, a power behind Captain Moore, guiding and working through him.  In my mind, the photograph captures four souls because, at this point at least, the baby was still viable. : Aid and Comfort to the Enemy : TIMOTHY FLOYD PHOTOGRAPHER, NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY, PHOTO ESSAYS, PHOTOJOURNALISM
