Incredible courage resides within all of our military branches. Illustrated two years ago in Afghanistan, by Air Force Staff-Sergeant Robert Gutierrez. A combat controller embedded with a Special Forces team, Sergeant Gutierrez and his fellow warriors found themselves pinned down in a building, surrounded and out-numbered by Taliban insurgents. His job, as combat controller, was to call-in and help pin-point air-attack assist when needed on the ground. Which he would immediately have done, were it not for the bullet wound in his chest that had caused one-lung to collapse. Regardless, he kept firing at the enemy, until the Green Beret medic was able to re-inflate that lung. Once done, Sergeant Gutierrez could then talk, and radioed for support, a call answered by one of our great A-10 "Warthogs," whose Gatling-gun efficiently-eliminated the surrounding enemy force, enabling all of our SF guys to survive.
