Public safety “half a world away”

Nice little article about two U.S. Army Reserve medics serving in Somalia, on their way to a dental clinic when they rescued a man trapped in a truck crash. One medic is a police officer back home, the other a volunteer firefighter. As one of them said, “It’s the right thing to do. I wouldn’t drive past an accident back home in New York. It didn’t matter that we were in Africa.”
