In Vogue
Even in the medical field, depending on the current study, techniques go in and out of vogue, take tourniquets.

Twenty years ago, nobody recommended using tourniquets for severe bleeding. Now-a-days, everyone wants one, two, or even three.

Either way, ...

You and your family will need to know how to use one. Trust me.

Two days ago, a Marine died in Iraq. Corporeal Neal is the first of potentially many more service members to die during this intervention.

But, ...

That's not what I want focus on, right now.

I want to focus on his family. His mother and father have lost a son. His sisters and brothers have lost a brother. If he was married and had children, his partner has lost a husband, and his children have lost a father.

That's the doom and gloom.
