Modified Golf Cart: Afghan Ambulance?

“‘The doctor, who had been in Afghanistan, said a lot of the [troops] were ‘getting their bell rung’ but didn’t necessarily need to be shipped all the way to the States for medical attention,’ Ball said. ‘He said they were struggling at the moment with an issue of how to get them to the hospitals for follow-up or treatment.’
Tee it up for the Troops, founded in 2005, has raised about $2 million for veterans and their families, largely through golf tournaments and events held in 30 states. Finding a military use for golf equipment is a new twist.
Ball, who runs a Burnsville, Minn., financial services company, said it took a lot of calls to cut through the red tape, but ultimately the military bought into the idea that a modified golf cart could be a possible answer to the transportation problem.”
