A homeless veteran called upon his military experience to save another man's life.

One man shot another man in Seattle after an argument between the two escalated.

The bullet struck his femoral artery causing him to lose a large amount of blood, King 5 News reports.

The wounded man ran down the street before collapsing. A few blocks away, a homeless veteran known as Staff Sgt. Royal came to his aid. Royal used a belt as a tourniquet on the manís leg, according to King 5 News.

2. Good for the guy!

This shows that the proliferation of guns have endangered people's public safety. People talk about having guns for self-defense but they don't think about how their actions with the gun (if they were to use it) would endanger innocent people in public.

3. I'd like to see a study done on gun deaths. How many deaths are caused

because people had access to guns and committed a crime, settled arguments or someone was accidentally killed. Compare that to how many people used guns for self protection. They'd be quite a difference and without a doubt...the far majority of guns are use for killing...not self defense.

4. It's sad to see another veteran has simply fallen through the cracks

as soon as his usefulness as a soldier has been completed.

Hope some conscientious person will step forward and make the move to hire this man who moves so effectively, wisely to rescue others.

Best wishes to Staff Sgt. Royal.
