Why do we do our work ... Why are guys out there on the front ... Why do they go ahead and die ... Why ... Why ... Rhetorical questions.
Pasha Chory. His name has appeared in my SMS in the first 24 hours after a battle 79ki. We collected data, we were looking for ours. Confused about the letters, in a hospital in Kharkov, he walked as Chornyy. We could not find it. Chorny, Chory. But now I will forever remember his last name, never messed up. We [asked for soldier] proilo right eye [hit] by shrapnel and he instantly emerged
Battle. 4am. Sniper. Was hit in the Right eye. He clamped one hand on injury, and with the second [hand] held on SVD and shot weight. As long as he could, there's a small ferrule. And couldn't reload. Battle, the thunder of explosions, screams of the wounded. Submit? Night. Shooting from all sides. Submit? SCARY?
And valiant National Guard 2nd Battalion. The BTR-4 must have bolted from the battlefield so swiftly, so single-mindedly that Stern crumpled in the trash aft cabin a GAZ-66 of the Marines, and there were people. They jammed. And fight! Night! And scary, because the cockpit could zadolbit′ grenades at any second.
Pasha had shot all the bullets, threw his rifle and ran to pull out the wounded. He punched in his eye by hand, pulled [out] four people! He did not give up, and to the hospital itself was conscious. Joked requested vodka and a cigarette. Indignant, he's a sniper, how is it - the right eye! And already in the hospital just disconnected.
Yesterday, President Paul awarded Choriyu Order "For Courage" order of III degree. Pasha has temporary prosthesis, and already there is hope that he will be taken to France to install permanent prosthesis on some super-concessional terms. We will only have to make him the documents and buy the ticket. There is money for it.
And on everything else? There were my paratroopers, they stayed there on the front lines. And need: Chernobyl-helmets-food-cigarettes-form-first aid kit-shoes-sleeping bags, camping mats-glasses. Glasses, the ones that protect the eyes.
