As a former Paramedic I can say I have been on a LOT of accidents, medical and fire call outs, etc. There is NOTHING more annoying than a Johnny Come Lately "Squad Captain," or whatever, that needs to validate himself and his presence. You're tired, sweaty, covered in god knows what, and suddenly this clean shirt shithead starts barking orders just so he can be a part of things. NOT good.
Oh what a scene for not only a SEAL but as a medic! Mass casualty triage with prolonged care.
Great story. Thanks for sharing.
This was the Mission in which Don was awarded the award for heroism. Actual "life-threatening", clearly defined risk to the individual awardee and others. The highest non-combat decoration awarded by the United States Navy. And who better to tell the story? Just amazing, Don !
