    Dude who got shot on the right and dude who treated him on the left. Both were given medals today

    http://www.itv.com/news/2014-03-21/o...d-for-bravery/
    A soldier who was shot through the neck but carried on fighting to save his comrades has been given one of the military's highest awards for courage.

    Doctors told Lance Corporal Simon Moloney the odds of the bullet missing his airway and major arteries were "a trillion to one," but despite bleeding heavily, he returned to his post and carried on firing at insurgents for 90 minutes before being flown to safety.

    A colleague who risked his own life to treat him has also been honoured.

    "I thought that was me, game over," said Simon, who serves with the Blues and Royals. "To me that was it, I had a few minutes to go out with a bang and do what I could."

    Thats just crazy man. But crazy shit happens in war. A friend of mine stepped on a landmine and survived completely unscathed besides a few fragments in his face that didnt even require stitching. CRAZY i tell you!

    Reminds me of how in The Specialists HL1 mod there was a gap in at least 50% of playermodels directly in the neck area, hitbox-wise. If you hit that area your shot would just go through thin air.

    My old man was shot in the neck during the Gulf War and didn't notice anything. One of his friends pointed it out to him and said "You've been shot in the neck."

    My dad had assumed the trickle down his back was sweat and had carried on fighting.

    He was a lucky fucker.

    The fellow was fortunate that nothing major was hit, else he would have been a dead man. But then again, it's always better to end up a living hero than a dead one, so to speak.

    Brits are also unlucky fuckers that like to open fire on friendlies and send artillery shells the wrong places, resulting in the death of children and other assorted innocents.

    Then again, war: crazy shit happens.

    Hah, nasty girl.

    On topic, good of the soldier to stay in the fight. Even being grazed is enough to put someone into shock and be incapacitated, let alone a through and through wound in their neck. This is the mentality I strive for, no matter how dire a situation gets I want to stay in the fight next to my battle buddies.
