Chief, recently retired, was one of 6 PJs on site for the attack on the Khobar Towers 25 JUN 1996 in Saudi Arabia during Operation Southern Watch. There were 19 deaths and 498 injured making this one of the largest Military Mass Casualty Responses.

This is an exceptional discussion starting with his career over 31 years and a snapshot into PJ Ops over these 3 decades.

He then discusses living through the blast and beginning to search and triage, organize, treat, then support the AF Doc for hours of treating casualties.

This is riveting, informative, and a document of the largest military MCI that I am aware of.
