Clarksville Online: Singing, clapping and dancing greeted Soldiers of the 36th Engineer Brigade, out of Fort Hood, Texas, as they walked up to a tent to attend the grand opening ceremony of the Ebola treatment unit near Buchanan, Liberia.

“Based on the other ETUs and the experiences we have, we decided that it would be best to make adjustments to the facility,” said Dario Gonzalez, a medical director with IOM, and a native of New York City. The adjustments of the ETU made by the IOM were to enhance their vision of care, Gonzalez said.
