Spc. Matthew Tarbell, a driver assigned to Destined Company, 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade, and a native of Fulton, New York, put a mock casualty into the recovery position during a combat lifesaver course in Voru, Estonia, Sept. 8, as part of Swift Bayonet, a training exercise that is part of Operation Atlantic Resolve.
