Col. John Boudreaux suffered a critical sudden cardiac arrest in 2016. He was dead for several minutes. Less than six percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest victims survive the trip to the hospital: His doctors gave him less than one percent. Today, as a group commander at Cannon Air Force Base, N. M., he bears the scars that remind him for every one of him, there are 99 others buried in the ground. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Lane T. Plummer) A commander’s story of survival

Susi shoved the gear shift to “Park.” She couldn’t do it fast enough, and sat back in the seat for a moment. She collected her thoughts as she closed her eyes and let her head fall back into the headrest. Her mind raced faster than her car could.
