Joseph Poquiz | Navy Corpsman, 3rd Marine Division (Attached) - Navy

5:52   |   When Corpsman Joseph Poquiz got to Iraq with his Marine unit, he quickly found out that his medical kit made him a target. He split it up and concealed it, adapting like he was taught. The insurgents made IED's from a huge array of old munitions and detonation devices including one made from discarded IV tubing.
