LIVERMORE — It was one of those moments that ran in slow motion but spanned a few seconds.
Sgt. Cristian Valle, with his company stationed in Badal, Iraq, was investigating a kidnapping, when a car barreled toward his direction. The next thing he knew, he was on the ground.
"All I remember was a gust of wind that came out of nowhere," he said. "I thought I was gone. I thought I was dead. I thought about (my wife) and the baby."
