Jimmy Strickler is a third-year student at the University of Maine in their Army ROTC program. While he was hiking on a mountain with some of his friends, they came across a severely dehydrated and hypothermic teenager. When he was unable to keep down any water or walk, Strickler and his friends carried the lost teen for almost four hours to get him down the mountain and to medical care.
