Dr. Tinh Huyn, an emergency room doctor at The Memorial Hospital in Craig, is no stranger to pressure. Huyn (pronounced win), a former U.S. Army major, spent a year-and-a-half in Tikrit, Iraq. There, he worked around the clock with four other physicians to patch up wounded U.S. soldiers, contractors, civilians and captured enemy soldiers. Huyn’s deployment stretched from early 2003 through 2005, when the war was at its peak.
