LT Reed Markham has a Soldier bleeding out, and no good way to evacuate him. LT Markham's men have just cleared 500 meters of city block on foot, and they are the only ones that know the way in. The planned CASEVAC route is not yet cleared of IED's, driving a vehicle on it risks more lives. The casualty weighs over 300 pounds with his gear. In a moment, LT Markham orders his men to package the Soldier on a SKEDCO and drag him back 500 meters through enemy territory to the safety of the FOB and the aid station. LT Markham weighed life versus mission and life versus lives.
