We are dating ourselves but our father was bitten by a snake during wartime. Dad said he kept cool and allowed the medic to take care of the wound. He didn’t have much time but they rushed him to the med-station ASAP and that timing, the fact his pals knew what to do when it happened, saved his life!

Were the soldiers taught how to suck out the venom or whatever else needs to be done at a frightening moment like that? Probably, but we are sure there are some secret ways to survive a snakebite they did not know – and we would be right!
