I sat down with a former Ranger medic from 3rd Ranger Battalion for a few hours to talk about the massive rescue and recovery operation following Operation Red Wings. Doc’s platoon was alerted and deployed to Afghanistan within 18 hours.
SOFREP: What was going through your head when you first got the page to deploy to Afghanistan ahead of our scheduled rotation which was a couple of weeks away?

Hey not in the military but to all that serve THANK YOU its appreciated and be safe
Great story so far. Lookin for a campfire myself to read part 2 near.
@robgb It wasn't a jab at the ODA guys at all. More than anything I was shocked that there were other friendly's on the ground. I've never seen a campfire on an objective either so I was a little taken back. Also, the very next statement was taking a shot at myself so....
@robgb Well, it was an ODA that rescued Marcus.
Nice shot at the ODA guys, one day Rangers will get the "one team, one fight concept" good story though.
