I am proud to say that I consider Mary Ann Phillips and Shelle Michaels friends. I really don’t know Michael Yon that well but am friends with many that do and I am a big fan of his writings and his book.

The story in the link below is a must-read. Especially if you would like a little bit of good news coming out of Afghanistan. This is a good-news story. It shows to what ends of the earth our US forces will go to save a life, and not even an American life. You can see by the speed they used to mobilize, and what they through at this problem to get the British soldiers to Germany alive that there was never a “hey who is paying for this” moment.

I can read this and plainly see as if I was there, that people had a mission and they stuck to it.

This is also a great testament to Soldier’s Angels and the awesome work they do. Bouhammer.com supports them directly with sales from the Bouhammer Gear Store and supports their Project Valour-IT initiative with the Twitterbird shirt. Now you will see why they are one of only four charities that I put my support behind.

Three Air Force aircraft along with multiple aircrew, aeromedical evacuation teams, and agencies from around the world gave a British soldier a fighting chance at life in late July after the soldier sustained multiple gunshot wounds and had his blood supply replaced more than 10 times at a military hospital in Afghanistan.

According to officials, the soldier sustained multiple wounds to the abdomen and chest, and was transfused with 75 units of blood and another 75 units of platelets.

Emergency surgery was conducted to repair the Soldiers’ liver and lung. After being stabilized by the medical teams on the ground, the patient’s respiratory condition worsened and doctors determined that the patient had to be moved to upgraded care in Germany.
