God bless our troops: Soldier hit four times, returns fire

September 27, 2012

We found a great video of a soldier in Afghanistan who was shot four times, retrieved his rifle, and fought on.

May God bless our troops and watch over them!

From the soldier…

“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. “

    Might it not be a better strategy to actually AIM at TARGETS rather than spraying bullets in random directions?

    Clearly the strategy was working for the enemy (the ones who hit him four times!)
