Lifeline was a paramedic with the Seattle Fire Department for five years before he discovered that EMS (Emergency Medical Service) personnel who were disabled while giving aid off-duty were not eligible for pensions. In his mind, rescue personnel were never off-duty. His status was made permanent when he was selected by Tiger Force as a battlefield medic.
“Elite units always take care of their own. Tiger Force is no exception. The men have to know that if something really heavy comes down on them and they´re in no condition to walk out of the mess, somebody is going to have the heart to wade in and extricate them. That somebody is Lifeline.”
