Unless you've been laying in a muddy rice paddy bleeding from places
that a man was never meant to bleed, you may not appreciate the call
from your buddy "Corpsman up!"...
This is the story of the men who risked
their lives on a daily basis to save the lives of their friends.
This was not always an easy job. Often it required that the "Doc"
(as they were usually called) fight his way up to the individual to
save his life, and then defend him until help arrived. A medic in a
Special Forces "A Team" might well be cross trained as a 'heavy
weapons man' or an 'explosives expert'. They were indeed a special
breed and this book is their story told in their own words. Gutsy,
selfless and always brave, they were beloved by all.
