Image result for wwii us medic in combat color

The Medic is the first line of help to the US Infantry, and as such they often made the difference between life and death. In the maelstrom of combat, they move from wounded man to wounded man, doing their best to stabilize and then move the wounded to an Aid Station. Tragically, the medics often had to make the decision of which wounded soldiers were beyond help, and resolutely move on to the next wounded man.
