Three rules of combat:
1. Soldiers die.
2. Doc can’t save everyone.
3. Doc will move heaven and earth to change rules 1 & 2.
I have always and publically stated that the true heroes serving with Charlie Company were our medics. The infantryman is trained to take cover and return fire. The medic is trained to provide aid to the wounded and mostly there is no cover while they are providing aid. The medics of Charlie Company did no less than the Vietnam Medal of Honor Recipients who were combat medics.
