Outstanding article!!! There are no telling how many people that he saved their life or improved their quality of life with his skills. Thank you so much for posting! The rescue “squadsmen” as we used to call them, are all heroes of mine. There were rescue squads all over this part of NC that started as rescue squads, then ambulance transportation was later added. They are all my heroes and were my inspiration for entering this awesome ministry of saving lives.
