Iraq War Combat Surgeon Rep. Brad Wenstrup Treated Rep. Scalise’s Wounds On The Field

As Congressman Steve Scalise lie felled by a shooter’s bullet and bleeding on a Virginia baseball field, Congressman Brad Wenstrup, an Iraq War combat surgeon, rushed to the fallen congressman’s side and began treating his wounds right there on the field.

Wenstrup, a congressman from Cincinnati, Ohio, provided medical care to Rep. Scalise who was shot in the hip at about 7:15 AM as the GOP baseball team began practice at a field in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday.

The Ohio Congressman told the media that Rep. Scalise was conscious and alert as he was trundled off to the hospital. “He was very brave,” Wenstrup said according to WLWT Channel 5 in Cincinnati.

I was privileged to be a member of a Navy reserve field hospital unit in the Middle East. The surgeons were all exceptionally well trained and experienced, many of them working trauma in settings like NYC. Philadelphia and DC. If I were to be shot, there's no better personal choice I could make for treatment than by one of them or surgeons, O.R. techs and nurses of their caliber.
