    I remember walking in Frankfurt, Germany on a beautiful night in September in 1978 while on a military mission there. I saw two men that were drunk walking down the street and one walked into the road and fell down in the road with heavy traffic. I pulled down and out American soldier to the sidewalk who had passed out and was bleeding from the head. I summoned the German police to help. I remember the policeman taking his very nice jacket off to put under the soldier who was bleeding.

    I have been able to use my CPR and first aid training several times from accidents and people drowning. You never know when your skills will be needed.

    The advent of the cell phone has made it so much easier to get medical help with 911 as we approach 9/11 I am thankful for people that help each other.

    Service is a great thing to do for others when they are in need. Sometimes we don't realize how much in need they may be.

    Thanks for the Red Cross who does so much to train and educate people. They even give us the opportunity to donate blood every 2 months.

    Well...he wouldn't have been in the predictament he was if he hadn't have been intoxicated. How many years, how many lives are going to be taken or injured because of neglecting the law...don't drive while drinking. That guy should be thanking the Lord above for providing someone who was physically able to save him.

    Only in Utah would they cite the man who almost died for public intoxication. Really? Didn't he suffer enough already?
