Michael Yon took this photograph of an armed medic last year in Zhari District, Afghanistan."Red Crescent" indication of his being a medic. But, unlike US medics, he is armed.
Actually, he is wearing the emblem of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
So, who is he signaling? I would think his fellow Afghan soldiers. "Hey, I'm your medic!"
