Saving Lives in World War II

Saving Lives in World War II


This is a moving interview of Sgt. Judson M. Hemperly, medic during World War II. He recalls an experience saving a pregnant civilian woman with a severely injured arm. They gave her morphine for the pain but could not stop the bleeding arm, which had all but one ligament severed. He amputated it with his scissors and they stopped the bleeding with sulfa drugs and wrapped it up in snow and a blanket.

They took the woman in a stretcher to a nearby hospital where he found a doctor who spoke English and explained the situation. The doctor said that he had saved the womans life by stopping the bleeding and would have done the same thing.

He wanted to go into WWII to save lives and he "wouldn't trade his experience for a million dollars."
