Saving War Corespondents' Lives

I saw him on Morning Joe today... Sebastian Junger was talking about a new program designed to give combat journalists a 3-day crash course in battlefield first aid to help them help themselves if they get hit on the front lines. Inspired by the case of Tim Hetherington, who was killed in Libya with Chris Hondros, Junger wants to make sure no more journalists die of wounds that go untreated by even minimum first aid.
Regardless of your opinions on journalists covering conflicts, saving lives is pretty much always a good cause, and if I can find a link to the organization Junger is engaging to run this program, I'll share.
