A supplement to Military Medicine (2000;165:1-48), published by the Association of Military Surgeons of the United States, Bethesda, Md, discusses medical aspects of the urban firefight between US forces and Somalis on October 3 and 4, 1993. Robert Mabry, who was a fourth-year medical student at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda when the workshop was conducted at a Special Operations Medical Association meeting, had been an enlisted medic in the battle, during which 19 Americans were killed and 108 wounded.
