Armed Medics in Bloody Combat

25 September 2012

Much controversy continues to swirl around the fact that our “Dustoff” MEDEVAC helicopters fly unarmed into combat.  They wear the Red Crosses, alerting the enemy that they are unarmed.  Note that this Afghan medic is armed, and wearing a Red Cross and Red Crescent.
