Medical personnel who are at the side of every injured soldier, sailor, airman and Marine are often overlooked in the annals of war. Ask any fighting man or woman and they'll tell you they're eternally grateful to the nurses, medics (search) and corpsmen who provided comfort in the most desperate of times. While they may not remember a name, they all remember that friendly face or the voice of the person who nursed them back to health.
