It is so important to honor our vets and respect the situations they face on a daily basis. Situations like this are life and death in EVERY case. They lay their lives on the line for the sake of this country, and it is time we show what it’s like on the ground for the troops on the front line. Don’t take these guys for granted.
Here’s a rundown of the video:
During a combat patrol in Logar, Afghanistan, a U.S. patrol comes into direct contact with the Taliban. They eliminate them with extreme prejudice.
VIA| The cameraman had this to say to after submitting the footage to FUNKER530:
This patrol was a relief in place and I was on point leading the new guys in for the RIP. We hadn’t taken much contact in this area, and it was generally considered a “safe” zone in Logar Province.
We patrolled the area frequently, and the locals would regularly thank us for pushing the Taliban away from their village so they could live their daily lives without constant threat.
The Taliban that we came across during this patrol were actually setting up to shoot down our new surveillance balloon that was launched in the area. The balloon caught the entire fight on camera from above, which confirmed that we killed 3 Taliban fighters during this engagement.
