First Lt. Steve Fiola and 25 other soldiers from the Massachusetts National Guard were participating in a ruck march at this year's Boston Marathon when bombs suddenly exploded near the finish line. Immediately, their training kicked into full gear as they pulled debris off of and applied tourniquets to the victims of this horrific attack. Their acts of bravery were heroic and inspirational; but according to Fiola, they “just did [their] jobs.”
