He never considered himself brave. He never thought of himself as a hero.
Everything he did was just what he'd been trained to do. To get in there and help. To save lives.
But there's a big difference between walking in armed to the teeth, ready to fight back, willing and able to deal death and walking our path armed with just medical supplies, guts and determination.
He was always there wherever we went. He was just "Doc" to us.
Doc wanted to serve, he volunteered, but Doc found his conscience wouldn't allow him to take life. Instead he chose to save it. He walked with us unarmed, taking the same risks without the ability to hit back.
I defy anyone to say this man was not a hero.
I am honoured to have been called friend by him.
John Logan died last week. Taken by Cancer. I will miss him. I will remember him.
