When the medics meet
It was October 23rd, 2017. Gary Rose had just been awarded the medal of honor by president Donald Trump. Once the ceremony has come to an end, Gary starts to move his way into the crowd to socialize with his fellow soldiers.
Gary Rose Sacrifice
Gary M. Rose showed extreme sacrifice while serving in the army. He put others lives before his own in the Vietnam war. Rose even used his own body to guard other injured soldiers. And even though he had his own injures he neglected them to help others, which exceeded the expectations.
The camera focuses on Gary Rose and Gary Beikirch shaking hands and zooms out to see both of them
Gary Beikirch Selfless
Gary Beikirch was extremely brave and selfless that day he went onto the battle field. Beikirch was shot near the spine causing it to move out of place, but that did not stop him from aiding the soldiers around him. Even though he could not move his legs he was carried from man to man healing their wounds until he was rushed out by a helicopter. Beikirch went above and beyond his expectations as a soldier.
