Army surgeon honored for heroism February 5, 2007Posted by daveintexas in honor.
UPDATED: Found some video of the ceremony.
Major Oh and a team of six volunteered to surgically remove a live RPG round from the stomach of a wounded Soldier in Afghanistan. Brock assisted in the operation.
The soldier is recovering at Brooks Army Hospital in San Antonio.
Wearing Kevlar body armor underneath surgical scrubs, and helmets, they risked their lives to save the life of this soldier.
The Soldier’s Medal is the Army’s highest decoration for valor not involving actual combat with the enemy.
In the same ceremony, Sgt. Troy Galvin received the Soldier’s medal for pulling a fellow Ft. Hood Soldier from a burning vehicle before it exploded, in an accident just a few miles from my home.
Greater love hath no man…
