Taliban Contact at Salar , Wardak Province
Forget the video most of you will have seen it anyways already, I just want to make a point, go to 1:03 min into the video, the amount of stuff this fella has to carry is ridicules, the time I did my service with the German Panzergrenadiers we always left a lot of stuff behind and carried only what was very necessary - Question to you all, would it be better for our guys to carry less into combat? Wouldn't that make them more effective?
Danish forces in Upper Gereshk Vally, Helmand province. This is close to PBL (Patrole Base Line) a verry hostile place. The first thing you see is the A-10 shooting smoke to confirm target, then he returns and lets all hell brake loose.
