Rare helmet-cam video shot in Afghanistan by a Medevac helicopter crew during the Battle of Ganjal Gar shows Capt. Will Swenson braving enemy fire to help his friend, mortally wounded First Sgt. Kenneth Westbrook, onto the aircraft.

He leans in and kisses the wounded soldier on the head in an act of compassion and loyalty to his brother-in-arms.
