Leave no man behind. The phrase rings through the minds of the armed forces, as one man stuck behind enemy lines seems to warrant the entire might and wrath of the United States military.
It almost seems like too a high a risk–to potentially lose multiple lives just to save one, and that’s assuming the rescue mission is successful in the first place. Still, the U.S. military has a rich history of rescuing their own at any cost. Maybe it’s because they know that every man and woman at their side would do it for them. Maybe it’s because while failure is a possibility, never even trying is not an option.
