    Spc. Channing Moss should be dead by all accounts. And those who saved his life did so knowing they might have died with him.


    March 16, 2006. Southeastern Afghanistan. A fierce ambush and bloody firefight. It was over in a flash and Moss was left on the verge of death.

    He was impaled through the abdomen with a rocket-propelled grenade, and an aluminum rod with one tail fin protruded from the left side of his torso.

    His fellow soldiers worried: Could he blow up and take them with him? For all anyone knew, the answer was yes.
