Bravery of a US Soldier

US Army Pfc. Stephen Tschiderer, a medic, was shot in the chest by an enemy sniper, hiding in a van 75 feet away.  The attack was videotaped by the insurgents, and that tape was recovered after Tschiderer jumped up, located the enemy's position, and radioed for help.  He then not only aided in the response and attack, but once the sniper was found and in handcuffs, Tschiderer gave medical assistance to the terrorist who had tried to kill him minutes before.
