Letter: KRMC ER staff are true heroes

Seldom does one get to witness the act of real heroism. On the evening of Dec. 26, my wife and I were in the emergency room at Kingman Regional Medical Center. We saw an act of kindness beyond belief.

Earlier in the day, Interstate 40 experienced numerous traffic accidents, which filled the ER with patients. One of these patients was an American soldier just back from Iraq. He was in transit to Los Angeles when he was taken to the ER for treatment. (See Tuesday's Miner.)

Apparently, the accident left him without a means of transportation. The ER doctors, nurses and medical technicians, without hesitation, cheerfully reached into their pockets and handed this soldier money for bus fare.

In my 35 years of fire service, I've never observed such generosity, kindness and caring for his fellow man. I salute the medical professionals of Kingman Regional Medical Center's Emergency Room.

They are true American heroes.

fire chief, ret.,
