BastogneFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionKunar Province, Afghanistan – It sounded like a worst-case scenario, April 2nd, when the call crackled over the radio during Operation Strong Eagle III, an operation to disrupt insurgent activities in the province: “We’ve got a Soldier shot in the face, and it looks like the bullet passed through and lodged in his chest.”

The wounded Soldier, U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Daniel Hayes of Grand Rapids, MI, not only survived, he walked to the medical evacuation helicopter that took him from the battlefield in the Marwara District to the 102nd Forward Surgical Team at Forward Operating Base Wright. After surgery at FOB Wright, Hayes walked to the second MEDEVAC chopper that transported him to Bagram Airfield for follow-up treatment.
