Dr Sam started his military career at the 1st Health Support Battalion with the Parachute Surgical Team – a small scale highly mobile hospital, able to respond within hours to any emergency, anywhere in the world, specifically by parachute. He found his most challenging trip was to Afghanistan, where he led a small medical team that integrated with an American helicopter-based retrieval team.
