Abstract:

Extraction in bound, withdrawal of forces to perspective landing zones LZ begins. The unit sustained a few casualties on this mission. The helicopters Helo land, personnel get on and take off in a timely manner. The two casualties marked with a red chemical light Chemlite on the floor can barely be seen. Under the whine of the engine and rattle of the helicopters movements I see an individual move with a sense of urgency and purpose. The platoon medic, doc, maneuvers through everyone and applies the technical medical skills required of a platoon medic. With night vision goggles I observe doc work feverishly treat, stabilize and save the casualties with precision and confidence expected of a surgeon.
