nam to life through the stories and experiences of the men who saved lives. These were the
corpsmen and medics assigned to combat units, the mercy warriors, who struggled to keep
men alive long enough to get back to a hospital unit. Afterwards they were the ones who

their military service. Their powerful stories and observations will help current and future
generations of mercy warriors save lives and help themselves cope with the consequences.
