NURISTAN PROVINCE, Afghanistan – At the beginning of an eight-hour firefight against insurgents, U.S. Army Spc. Brit B. Jacobs, a combat medic from Sarasota, Fla., assigned to Company C, 2nd Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment, Task Force No Slack, fires his M4 rifle from a remote hilltop in the Shal Valley in eastern Afghanistan's Nuristan Province Nov. 7. “My attitude as a medic is if I can end the evil, the bad stuff the enemy’s doing before they can hurt one of my guys, before I have to do my job, then that’s a good day for everybody,” said Jacobs.

You’re treating causalities that get hit or wounded from enemy shots or explosions,” Jacobs said. (Photo by U.S. Army Staff Sgt.

They’ll yell ‘medic,’ and that’s pretty much a siren for everybody. When they hear that, everybody’s heart kind of drops for a minute,” said Jacobs. (Photo by U.S. Army Staff Sgt.

There are some boulders and some rocks and some bushes which are good for concealment, but bullets can go through that,” said Jacobs. (Photo by U.S. Army Staff Sgt.
