More troops to fight ebola

I can’t believe the U.S. government would send 700 troops from the Red Bull 34th Division of the National Guard to fight ebola. In the article it indicated these men and women would be doing medical work. Earlier we sent a large number of regular troops for the same reason. In my opinion, this makes no sense. Isn’t there any people in Africa that can do this same work? What happens if a number of these people are infected and bring this dreaded disease back with them?
