Now I have a cool little green star next to my name whenever i play oh:

i was a recruiters wet dream.



But still... I give props to the dude that did that. Most people don't have a sense of "helping others out type attitude" these days.

Active? Ive been guard for 2 years, facing possible deployment to the sandbox. Being artillery doesnt help, either.

And, i dont think he got lucky, seeing how he evaluated the situation like he did.


But ya... if my world suddendly turns into an fps, my cs:s training will really help me... i just gotta remember not to push my spots when im counter terriost and use my mic to communicate with my teammates. And if i'm t side praise allah?
You can only not get prosecuted if you are registered CPR, or other kinds of certifications. In this guys case, since he didn't have any real certification (not including the video games certification) so if he had messed up and it rusulted in one of those people's death, he would be sued.

I'll take any of you on MOUT....that's my map.

But anywho....that's cool that he was smart enough to do that...I've sat through many first aid and medical classes and schools and all that jazz (but never long enough to actually get my first aid card, mind you )...it's good stuff to know. Most of the time, it's just common sense...none of their injuries were life threatening, thankfully...my biggest concern would've been the guy who lost his fingers....and him going into shock.
