from the owner: 3/7 Kilo company. YUT! note:the guy recording the video is a fucking weirdo. hahah we've also yelled at him a couple times to put his fucking head down. this video took place in Afghanistan, Helmand province in Musa qala after a 10 day operation. we started to pull out (to get ready for Sangin) which this video takes place. i dont remember much of the op. there was about 180 something confirmed Taliban KIAs. I'm in the back of the Green 7ton w/ trailer in the rear of the convoy at 02:10 in the vid and most of who you heard the screams "incoming" from. its not visible in the vid but one of the rounds landed 5ft for the vic. and when the convoy finally began to move the trailer blew up....yep close. you may wonder why we took so long the move. thats because we were waiting on the ANA to load up. which some did get hurt but not KIAs. i know one for fact had shrapnel go though the lobe in his ear(piercing? hahah). the marines that did got hurt in the video are still fine. 2 were Motor T and one was our 1st SGT. its funny though because he was more pissed about his tattoo being damaged more then the injury in his leg. me and a few other helped him off the vic for CASEVAC. This was only a taste of what we as a company experience before we went through hell in Sangin. but its an experience we are damn proud of. i loaded this video for mostly myself. manly so i wont forget.
173rd airborne combat team Fusion Co. my platoon got into it with taliban on a hot ass day in the wardac province in afghanistan..fun as hell to watch but wasnt fun to actually be there.
from the video owner This video has been trimmed down for time. There were some long lulls in between the action. We kept taking contact from a small Taliban force using grape huts and a row of trees to attempt to maneuver on our patrol.The man we called back halfway through the video was a member of the Afghan Local Police, and he was high on Hasheesh all the time. At the end of the video, the smoke rounds were fired so the helicopters could find their target.
