    In the flickering light of a flare drifting to earth, Army flight medic Daniel “Buzz” Buzard spots a scrum of U.S. soldiers bearing a wounded comrade across a stony Afghan riverbed en route to his helicopter.

    Only night-vision goggles illuminate on this moonless night, and a glimpse of the casualty leaves Buzard cold.

    “He’s just mangled,” the medic recalls.

    He’s looking at Army Staff Sgt. Christopher Walker, 28, a bomb technician with a 7-year-old daughter named Kali waiting back home.
