    U.S. Army National Guard Spc. Terry Mills, 51, is a Medevac crew chief serving with a joint Mississippi-Texas national guard unit, Valkyrie Medevac, on Forward Operating Base Salerno, Afghanistan. Mills joined the National Guard after retiring from fire fighting. Performing rescues in eastern Afghan under fire, however, is different from anything he faced in his 32 years of fire service. "There's not a whole lot of control out here," said Mills, of Brandon, Miss. "There's a whole lot of variables out there we have no control over. We're not going to go out there and tell the bad guy 'stop, we have to get this guy out of here.' We just do it anyway."
