2005 Spurgeon Neel Writing Competition winners.

COL Thomas Munley, Executive Vice-President of the Army Medical Department Foundation, has announced that CPT Kevin Goke, William Beaumont Army Medical Center, Fort Bliss, TX, and 1LT Rene De La Rosa, Brooke Army Medical Center, Fort Sam Houston, TX, has been selected as winners of the 2005 Spurgeon Neel Writing Competition. CPT Goke is a psychiatric nurse and 1LT De La Rosa is a medical-surgical nurse.

The article by CPT Goke and 1LT De La Rosa, titled "Mental Health Services at FOB Abu Ghraib: Nafsea (Psychology) Through the Wire" appeared in the July-September 2005 issue of the AMEDD Journal. The article provides a look at the history and current medical and mental health care provided to both U.S. troops and Iraqi detainees. The judges determined that this article best exemplified the history, legacy, and traditions of the Army Medical Department.

As Neel Writing Award winners, CPT Goke and 1LT De La Rosa will divide a $500 monetary prize and receive specially-designed medallions that will be presented at an AMEDD Museum Foundation special event in March.
