COMBAT STORIES FROM Afghanistan

Michael Trost | 489th Civil Affairs Battalion - Army

8:22   |   He'd been shot eight times with machine gun fire. Michael Trost had put a couple of tourniquets on himself but his team stepped in and the bandaging began. After some difficulty reminiscent of the Three Stooges, he was evacuated by helicopter. He had some serious wounds and the surgeries began as soon as he touched down. Part 2 of 2.
