Firefight



No rounds penetrated his body armor, and he made it home with no permanent injuries. This happened in Kunar Province, Afghanistan.
From the cameraman:
” I got a hit a total of 4 times. My helmet cam died and i made it down the mountain on my own. I was also hit in the side of my helmet and my eye pro was shot off of my face. We were doing overwatch on the village to recon and gather intel. I was point heading down the face of the hill with the LT. when we got hit. the rest of the squad was pinned down by machine gun fire. I didn’t start the video until a few mins into the firefight for obvious reasons. I came out into the open to draw fire so my squad could get to safety.”
“A round struck the tube by my hand of the 203 grenade launcher which knocked it out of my hands. When I picked the rifle back up it was still functional but the grenade launcher tube had a nice sized 7.62 cal bullet hole in it and was rendered useless. “

I took balls to draw fire like that.

I saw this on another site. He's one lucky dude who at least was probably "going commando" so he didn't need to change his skivies.

Anyone who has had incoming fire come within inches at supersonic speed knows the pucker factor is massive.

Some day we are going to snap. We will become as mean and nasty and dirty as our enemies. We won't have a problem ripping Abul's 7.62 from his quivering body and using it against him and his people. There will be no ROE's. They will fear us.

That guy has balls of steel! You can see rounds hitting all around him for a good minute or so before he takes a hit and it doesn't really even phase him.

I was expecting an A-10 to come in and wipe the stinkbeards out with a strafing pass like this.

What ? ,This ain't a fuckin video game.'Holy Shit !' their using REAL bullet's !, NO FAIR !. Comrade Obama's Gucci Army must be spending more time teaching these guy's how to suck dick's and fuck one another in the ass than they do on marksmanship.Look at the cover he had available. why did he even get hit once much less 4or5 time's?.

Why do we put out boys and girls in this situation when we could kill these rag head mother fuckers from the air all day long.
