US Soldier Who Helps Squad To Safety Shot 4 Times And Survives [VIDEO]

.

Recently, a US military squad on an Intel mission got pinned down by Taliban machine gun fire in Kunar Province, Afghanistan.  One soldier has uploaded his helmet cam video of the firefight.

The soldier moved out into the open in order to protect, and possibly save, his unit.

“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.”

More information about this soldier will be provided as it becomes available and/or public.
