US Marines save, heal Afghan IED victim

U.S. Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Raangelo Kilgore, a 21-year-old corpsman with Weapons Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, wraps a bandage around the remainder of 15-year-old Sayed Gul’s leg during Gul’s weekly visit to Patrol Base 00 here, Dec. 2. Gul lost half of his left leg when he was struck by a 20-pound. improvised explosive device in March near the Marine patrol base. He was evacuated by helicopter to receive three weeks of advanced care at Camp Dwyer’s Combat Support Hospital. After returning to his village and becoming extremely sick, he received life-saving care from Weapons Co. Marines and corpsmen. He returns to them weekly for continued care. “If the Marines weren’t here, maybe I’d have lost my life because nobody else would’ve been able to help me,” Gul said.
