The article informs that the Dwight D, Eisenhower Army Medical Center is a major player in the fight against terrorism. The medical center cares for hundreds of returning soldiers from the battlefield. Brigadier General, Eric Schoomaker, commander of the Southeast Region Medical Command and the medical center, not only wanted to provide the best medical attention to these soldiers as possible, but provide them and every patient visitor and staff the safest and most secure environment. With advanced and sophisticated surveillance technology, the medical center security force is able to watch more area and point targets than with the use of mobile and walking patrols.
