CPT James Eadie Reports Again

Blackfive introduced us to Captain James Eadie, an Air Force physician, via an email he received in which the captain described a Marine corporal's heroic efforts to save his squad from severe injury or death by tossing away a live grenade.

Here is another example of CPT Eadie's reports of the heroism he encounters on a daily basis in Iraq...

I focused on one soldier who was the most severely injured. His face, arms and legs were severely burned. His gloves were welded to his fingers by the heat, though he remained conscious and able to talk.

His concern was for his men.
As the captain soon discovered, this soldier had done more than just show concern for his men. The rest of the story is here. Bring your tissues...
