NASHVILLE, Tenn. - For Veterans Day, we met with and honored one veteran who nearly paid the ultimate price.
TriStar Southern Hills nurse Justin Laferty was injured in Iraq nearly 13 years ago when his Humvee flipped.
A medic saved his life, which also changed his life. Laferty became an Army medic to thank the medic who was there for him.
His experience as a combat medic has helped him remain calm under pressure while at his job at TriStar Southern Hills.
Newschannel 5's Steve Hayslip and photojournalist Toney Cook found out how Laferty has been using his near death experience to help save others.
