As gunfire rained down in Las Vegas on Sunday night, a country music festival turned into what first responders have described as a “war zone” with over 50 dead. U.S veterans sprang into action to protect those around them and helped others find cover, evacuated the injured, treated the wounded and did what they do best – put themselves in harm’s way for the good of others.

Here are a few of their stories.

That was perhaps the worst scenario imaginable! Receiving automatic fire from an unknown position with no cover for thousands of civilians is horrific. That's when repetitive training counts most, and those brave folks were up to the job. I have the greatest respect for them!

And to look at the angles involved, half the people could not see past the cover of the stage to see the angles the shots COULD be coming from. Add in the sound echoing and it must have sounded like there were gunman in every direction. Geeze just at the gun range it can be hard and everybody is facing the same way!
