This is what supporting the boots on the ground is all about.

Well done to all. Prayers for the recovery and long road ahead to the WIA soldier.

How do they use 26 gallons of blood? What situation would require so much blood?

Massive transfusion protocol...not unusual for a prolonged resuscitation when definitive surgical intervention is delayed. Of course, there are other products as well that are administered and I am sure contributed to the total. Not to mention that he probably became coagulopathic (DIC). Many factors to consider...

Damn that is outstanding medical work.

Bet the team was dealing with the Trauma Triad for a LONG time.

Hope the best for that stud.

Apologies in advance if out of my lane in here. Not sure how often you hear from the AF on this.

THE biggest privilege of my career was to be in a unit that got the call whenever one of you guys needed a ride to the CSH or the Role 3 downrange.

Hard for me to adequately explain in a few words, but there is very little my guys would not have risked to get you guys back home safely. I hesitate to speak for the aeromedical guys and girls but I've done enough patient transfers to say with confidence they feel the same way, as do the airlift guys who are tasked with this.

There is no better feeling on the planet when it goes right, especially with injuries this severe.

I can not imagine a more rewarding mission.
