This is a poignant obituary for Jameson Lindskog, 23, who was killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan. Jameson was a medic who had Asperger’s, and was known for telling it like it is.
The end of the article is heartbreaking:
“Even after he had been shot, Lindskog calmly instructed another soldier who came to his side on how to administer first aid to him,” the soldier would later tell Lindskog’s mother.
When he was done, Lindskog told him: “That’s it. That’s all you can do for me.”
Then he added, “Just hold my hand.”“
People on the spectrum can be just as brave as the rest of us.
