Soldier wounded while helping comrade

June 14, 2004

Tifton- Private First Class Josh Moore is spending his medical leave visiting his recruiter and catching up with his wife Hanna.

The 25 year old Army medic was shot in the right leg by a sniper while trying to run to the aid of another soldier.

"When I got shot we had one of our other soldiers go down and they had called me out there to get him. I'm a medic so that's when my job starts when other people get hurt, and I was trying to get to him when I got shot," he explains.

Moore says he's not sure whether he will have to return Iraq, but he is expected to report for duty in Germany in two weeks.
