Join us with Author Patrick Thibeault as we discuss his book My Journey as a Combat MedicPatrick Thibeault offers a compelling, insider’s account of what it is like to be a Combat Medic in time of war. Thibeault narrates the harrowing moments Combat Medics endure as they courageously rush into danger to save wounded soldiers and civilians, their tender compassion in the face of brutality and violence, and their unswerving dedication to making sure they accomplish their mission and take care of the wounded.

            “There is no job like that of an Army medic,” says Thibeault “You will travel to places and see things that others can only dream about. It is not an easy job, but it is a rewarding one. The rewards are not badges, ribbons, or bonus money; the rewards come from the good feeling you get from healing people. You will learn new skills on the battlefield that doctors are not taught in medical school yet. You will experience the highs when you save a live. You will experience the lowest of lows when someone dies on you.”http://www.amazon.com/My-Journey-Combat-Medic-Operation/dp/193492265X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1321640178&sr=8-1
