Amazing Movie About a Soldier Shot by a RPG 

" Read before clicking on link below: The story is about Channing Moss,
 who was impaled by a live RPG during a Taliban ambush while on patrol.
 Army protocol says that medivac 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 in such a case the patient is to be put in a
 sandbagged area away from the surgical unit, given a shot of morphine and left to wait (and die) until others are treated. Again, the medical team ignored the
 protocol.  Here's a short video put together by the Military Times, which
 includes actual footage of the surgery where Dr. John Oh, a Korean immigrant who became a naturalized citizen and went to 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 , GA. I think  you'll find the video absolutely remarkable.
