HM2 Yamato went down heavily. Corporal Herrington ran to his side.
“You okay, Doc?” the Marine asked with concern on his face.
“I think so. What do you think?” the Corpsman said pointing.
“It doesn’t look good,” Herrington replied.
“You know, Steve, you could work on your bedside manner a bit,” the Corpsman replied.
“What do you need me to do?” the Marine asked.
“Go pick my bag up from over there and bring it to me,” the Corpsman instructed.
Herrington went and retrieved the medic’s bag from the roadside, where it had fallen.
Yamato pulled out a roll of tape and began wrapping his shoe. “That’s the last time I’m going to let you talk me into buying cheap running shoes.”
