Not to sound crude or anything, but that just seems unprofessional of the Red Halo mil guys. Imagine theyre breaking safety procedures there or something...
Its nice to see the softer side of the Red Halos as well, opposed to the burly and bitchy behavior witnessed before. Gives nice contrast to the organization as a whole. Kinda makes em more tangible as people.
I'm guessing this is one of those "screw procedure, he's one of us!" moments you always hear about when "pros" (we don't know how seasoned this Halo's are) forget all their training and get desperate to save their buddy.
