Among the attendees were 10 men who fought alongside McCloughan at Tam Ky in May 1969, including five whose lives the former combat medic is credited with saving, Trump said.

It is difficult to assess which of McCloughan’s near-death encounters at Tam Ky was the most harrowing. There were so many. During the vicious 48-hour battle, McCloughan — who was known as Doc — risked his life at least nine times to save wounded or stranded comrades, and he helped prevent the much larger North Vietnamese force from overrunning them.
“As one of his comrades recalled,” Trump said, “whoever called ‘medic’ could immediately count on McCloughan. He’s a brave guy. … He crawled through a rice paddy thick with steel rain. That means bullets all over the place. As soldiers watched him, they were sure that was the last time they would see Doc. They thought that was the end of their friend Jim.”
