I was wondering how you would be able to get the official report of an IED attack. I was wounded in 06 and I am very curious to see what they managed to find out about what hit me and my truck. Also any idea on how to find out who was part of the cash hospital team that treated me? Would love to be able to thank the people who worked on me. Any information or places to start would be greatly appreciated.
it depends on where you were and what controlling command was running the show. CENTCOM Baghdad had a unit that was called JCCS-1 I was attached to them as a EWO Electronics Warfare Officer responsible for the programming and maintaining all IED/EFP jamming equipment (2 tours in Iraq)
I see that this post is a few months old, but in 2005, we kept a database on the sipr that recorded the official report of every IED attack in the Al Anbar province. Don't know about the hospitals. Talk to someone in the IED task force, or an intel guy that can snoop around for you. (I'm not advocating that you do anything illegal. Ensure that anything you take from high side is declassified.
We saved all that stuff on the SIPR. Most of which was wiped after we left. Those reports went from Platoon - Company - Battalion - Brigade - Land Owner. I'm not sure what the land owner does with them after the fact.
If you were treated in a hospital they should have a DTG of what happened. That'd be the best way.
You'd probably have to get your congressmen involved. None of the folks that handled that report would still be in that unit.
