 TXNG Soldiers helps save life on border

 Story By Maj. Randall Stillinger

 WESLACO, Texas – The quick response of three Texas Army National Guard soldiers on Sept. 11, 2014, helped save  the life of a local Texan.
The soldiers, who were manning an observation post as part of Operation Strong Safety, administered emergency first aid to an injured man after he accidentally cut himself while clearing brush along the river.
At one point during their shift, a pickup truck came speeding toward the soldiers’ observation post. 
“At first we thought they might be runners,” one soldier remarked. 
The driver then jumped out of the vehicle and started yelling, “He’s cut! He’s cut!” 
The soldiers, who asked not to be identified for the security of themselves and their families, thought this might be a training scenario.
