Get Him the Hell Outta There

U.S. Army Signal Corps Soundphoto H-181, dated September 20, 1944

A U.S. Army captain lies wounded in the street of Madiers, France (face down in the foreground) after being struck by German machine gun fire. Men of his platoon are prone in the background, providing covering fire as a medic (left foreground, with a red cross stenciled on his helmet) gets ready to drag him out of harm's way. The original caption indicates that bullets were whizzing overhead as this photo was taken.
