Doc Turner saved my life

Richard was one of my corpsmen KIA in the action in which I, the senior squid of Lima 3-3 company, was wounded. He was patching me up just as a ricochet from our air support went through my femoral artery. He got a tourniquet on me right away, or I would have bled out right there. He was killed later that night. A great loss, he was such a good person.
