This is the incredible story of Channing Moss.
During the course of a Taliban ambush while out on patrol, Channing was impaled by a live RPG.
Army protocol says that medevac choppers are never to carry anyone with a live round in him. Even though they feared it could explode, the flight crew said damn the protocol and flew him to the nearest aid station.
Again, protocol said that under these kind of circumstances the patient is to be put in a sandbagged area away from the surgical unit, given a shot of morphine and left to wait (triage) until others are treated.
Again, the medical team ignored the protocol.
This video was put together by the Military Times; actual footage of the surgery where Dr. John Oh, a Korean immigrant / naturalized U.S. citizen and graduate of West Point, removed the live round with the help of volunteers and a member of the EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) team.
Moss has undergone six operations but is doing well at home in Gainesville, Georgia.
