    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 Monday at 3 a.m., according to the Seattle Times.
    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 man’s leg, according to King 5 News...
    ....Royal, who served in the army for 10 years and fought in the first Gulf War, attributed his knowledge in how to respond to his medical training at Ft. Carson..
    ....The victim, who is also homeless and a long-time friend of Royal’s, was transported to a hospital where his condition has been stabilized,...
    ....In the meantime, Royal says he is focused on the recovery efforts of his friend.
    "Hopefully, he'll be okay. I'm just gonna pray for him..

    Seemed to be doing what he has a skill for; helping out his fellow man, and more so, a friend. Nice!!
