For many surviving military veterans, the Vietnam War is an indelible part of their lives.

Produktbeschreibung
For many surviving military veterans, the Vietnam War is an indelible part of their lives. That they survived is due in many cases to the heroic, life-saving actions of combat medics like Bill "Doc" Strusinski. Being a frontline medic was, and still is, one of the most dangerous jobs in the Army. Medics were targeted by the enemy and often called upon to aid fallen soldiers in the line of fire. In Strusinski's riveting book, Care Under Fire, Strusinski thrusts the reader squarely into moments of terror during firefights, the exhaustion of endless patrols, the anguish of losing friends despite best efforts to save them, and the intimate bonds created during times of desperate need. This is a book about war, yes, but even more about how one man was transformed by his "sacred duty" to offer care under fire to the young soldiers he fought beside.
Autorenporträt
Bill Strusinski has 49 years of state government lobbying experiences. Early in his career, he served in a variety of positions in the Executive Branch, including Deputy Commissioner and Commissioner of Administration. He served three Governors, including Wendell Anderson, Rudy Perpich and Al Quie. He was also responsible for the day-to-day operation of the agency and was the Governor's lead advocate to secure legislative funding support for over $1 Billion in state capital investment projects. Since his early days in State Government, Strusinski has developed expertise in building and construction regulations, government finance and tax policy, public health policy, capital investment (bonding projects) and business regulation. He continues to work extensively with the major business regulatory (commerce), legacy, environment, finance, capital investment and tax committees in the legislature and understands their impact on small business and individuals. Strusinski formed his own public policy firm in 1981 and has been advocating on the behalf of good public policy development as a lobbyist since that time. He has received numerous awards recognizing his professional abilities, including being named as one of the top ten lobbyists in Minnesota by the Star Tribune newspaper. He says what he enjoys most about lobbying is empowering people and using his rich experience and contacts in the public and private sectors to successfully represent his clients. Bill Strusinski and his wife, Kirsten Libby, make their home in Scandia, Minnesota, a suburb of the Twin Cities.
