    While I'm fairly sure these men & women get "thanked" frequently...this is still a very thankless job. I'm sure they deal with patients passing during transport as well as the other horrors that go along with wounds on the battlefield (has anyone ever seen a "nice" looking wound?) For what its worth - THANKS from an 'ol retired SFC...Carry On!
