If you make it to Landstuhl, you’re good to go.   It was an article of faith among the Marine infantrymen in Iraq that if the corpsman plugged up the hole to keep you from bleeding out...and the Air Force got you all the way to the Army hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, then you’d live...    and you’d eventually get home.
