Most memorable moment during deployment: Being struck by six daisy-chained explosively formed projectiles (EFP) while riding lead convoy vehicle in Iraqi that hit the driver’s side of our vehicle. The severely injured driver managed to pull the vehicle safely to the side before passing out from massive blood loss. The Truck Commander (TC), turret gunner, and I rushed to provide first aid while the rest of the convoy pulled security. I grabbed a tourniquet out of my Combat Life Saver bag and assisted the TC in stopping the bleeding. We found that additional shrapnel had struck his upper thigh so I provided another tourniquet for the wound. After our driver was MEDEVAC, we continued to complete our mission. We arrived at our destination and linked up with our driver who had to have his leg amputated but was able to keep his life.
