Hopefully my team will never have to use them again, but if we do, I know they can make the difference.

"I got the dressings for my personal IFAK from a medical unit in Taji , Iraq in late 2004. I served as an Infantry Sniper there, and asked for them to ensure my team would have a better chance if wounded while working away from the medics. I did get to employ one when a platoon I was attached to ran across a wounded Iraqi. He had a gunshot wound to the knee, going upwards into the thigh. It was bleeding quite a bit, and the Hem-con did a great job in sealing the wound. I've been very happy to have the Hem-con's with me ever since. Thank you, not only for the bandages, but for providing what has saved countless lives. Hopefully my team will never have to use them again, but if we do, I know they can make the difference. If I do use another in combat, I'll be sure to let you know about it."
