Dr. Kalantari explained us about his activities during the imposed war and said : at the beginning of the war I was the deputy minister of health . I passed my surgery periods in the USA , a country which suffered from war , I mean shooting on each other was a kind of hobby for them and I usually faced with the injuries who were injured by shot gun or bullet war so I was familiar with these types of injuries .
He continued : as I took my degree from the USA , I decided to came back to my country to create this field in my country .
Fore front was the mere place which I felt good and useful
Dr . Motamedi continued : I started the surgery in the field hospital in Iran and fore front was the mere place which I felt good and being useful and that was the second goal of my returning to Iran , to save the people who would absolutely die after the injuries that was very enjoyable I could not find it anywhere .
Dr .

I had seen many things like these during the second defense .
We put all the facilities at the fore front
Dr. Mohammad Reza Kalantari continued : we had transferred all the facilities of our hospitals in cities to the field hospitals since Imam Khomeini told us " war is the most important thing and all the facilities must be at the fore front " so we tried to do the best . there were no shortage of medicine during the war .

Now he wanted to explain us a memory :
I remember that we had not enough sleep for 10 days during the 4th Karbala operation . I was not good at all and there was an injury whose surgery must be done . in front of the surgery room , I understood that he had not taken a picture of his lung , I sent him to take and slept for 20 minutes as he came back I started the surgery which was a good one . sometimes I must managed 8 surgeries, it was too hard but we all worked for a unit goal . sacred defense was the best and the holiest period of my life .
