Doc: Platoon Medic

A non fiction book by

Dan Evans arrived in Vietnam on October 7, 1968, a 21- year-old Army medic who couldnÂ't stand the sight of blood. Thrust into the cauldron of combat, he soon became a seasoned veteran of emergency medicine and the brutal realties of war. Before his time was up, he would master the skills of a surgeon, acquire the patience of a saint, and demonstrate the courage of a lion.....

Here, in his own words, is the gripping true story of Dan Evans, the highly decorated soldier whom the men of First Platoon, Bravo Company, called the Â"fighting medic.Â" Whether skimming the treetops in a MEDEVAC chopper or slogging through the mangrove swamps with an M-16 in one hand and an aid kit in the other, Evans went too work when things went bad. His mission: treat the wounded amid the mud, blood and bullets, or die trying. Experience the rage, the sorrow and the remarkable spirit of Dan Evans - the PLATOON MEDIC who became a true American hero.
