I think the standard answer to your question is that you get the enemy
to *surrender* first, patch him up enough to move him, and then stick
him in a POW camp for the duration, or until you get something in return
for releasing him.

I would never patch someone up so he can go back to *shooting* at me, or
my friends.  Never.
