KITGUM, Uganda - 1st Lt. Victoria Lynn Watson, an Army Reserve nurse deployed to Uganda with the 7225th Medical Support Unit (MSU), swaddles a newborn, October 20, 2009. Watson is a labor and delivery nurse in her civilian occupation and was asked to assist when the mother arrived at the Pajimo Clinic in an advanced stage of labor. She gave birth to a healthy, 5.5 lb. baby boy about 90 minutes later and asked Watson to name her son. Watson chose the name "Cage." The medical team was in Kitgum as part of Natural Fire, a multi-national military exercise focusing on humanitarian assistance, disaster response, and regional security.
