  1. Thanks for posting this video. It’s a really graphic depiction on the realities of life and death in a combat zone. I think the soldier at the end really summarizes things well when he explains his disgust for war after seeing its impact on solider and civilians. Great to see medics use their skills so well in a high pressure and dangerous situation.
