Deeply impressed with the devotion and bravery of the combat medics serving in the New Guinea campaign, YANK MAGAZINE correspondent Dave Richardson wrote this short article, praising the daring do of four medics in particular:

"Then it happened. From Jap pillboxes buried under palm fronds came a withering hail of machine-gun fire...The patrol, out in the middle of fire, hit the mud. The men continued toward the Japs on their bellies. Two quit moving, and we knew they'd been hit... Up from the mud, in the midst of the patrol, scrambled an unarmed soldier. He raced through the two-way machine-gun fire and dropped beside the man who had quit moving. He turned the man over, took one look and grabbed for the pouches at his side. There in the heat of battle, he dressed and bandaged the wound. Then he raced to the next one and to other wounded men in the patrol."

1943 was truly the year that proved to have been the turning point in the war, click here to read about it...
