Description
Aftermath of a big damn IED in Afghanistan. Taken in 2012. No life threatening injuries, but it was a close thing. The IED launched the truck into a wheelie, and the force of the front hitting the ground again turned on the helmet cam. It wasn't noticed until hours later that right red light was on.

Sonofa... that was crazy! Amazing how fucked up the outside was compared to the inside. Glad everybody made it out with relatively minor injuries.
