I wasn't sure if it belonged here or under Medical Pearls.

Take care.

Hat's off to the Medical crew and EOD techs. That took some balls. It was either the most stupidest thing they have ever done or by far one of the bravest. Glad it worked out the way it did and no one else got hurt.

American systems and training, american military personnel, american attitudes.....that's what heros are made from.....each person coming in contact with that patient is amazing in their own right...doing their job, but giving of self to aid another human being under terrible circumstances. "Bending" the rules so that an american soldier can have the chance at life.
Thank you for posting that.....

It belongs on CNN and Fox, on NBC and all the rest. I don't know how many civilians understand the nobility of the American Soldier, but I know it's far too few.

From the medic who charges thru fire to get to you, and the guys in your unit who rush in to defend the wounded, from the pilot who comes in before the danger is gone instead of waiting.

All the way back to the facility where you can see how intently medical personnel focus on the wounded soldier with little, if any, thought for themselves.

There's a brotherly love that exists in a combat theater that I, for one, have seldom seen anywhere else. Yes, winning is the goal. Still, it's when I see something like this that I am most proud to have been a soldier.

Channing was in my old unit. Same platoon. March 16, 2006. This ambush resulted in 2 or 3 Bronze Stars with V and a butt load of ArCom with V. Awesome guy with amazing luck. The medic, Doc A, was the real hero. He knew what he had on his hands, knew his own limitations and did what he could and had to do to get Moss on the bird and out of there. His case is also in the book War Surgery in Afghanistan and Iraq.
