When I went to PLDC (sergeant school in the Army) way back when, I found it interesting that they teach that after a firefight, you check your men and yourself for "leaks", because men are often shot and don't know it. In fact, do a search for Medal of Honor narratives and you'll find hundreds of men who were grievously wounded, shot many times, yet survived to defend their buddies or take down that machine gun nest. Roy Benevidez looked like a postage stamp after being perforated so many times yet rescued many men and documents. It is a Hollywood myth that people just fall down after being shot. It just don't happen like that.
