Afghanistan - US Army Turret Gunner Gets Wounded By RPG Shrapnel During Heavy Firefight With Taliban

This video from Afghanistan submitted by the US army turret gunner who was wounded in action shows a heavy firefight between US army soldiers and taliban fighters from the inside of a US army truck as multiple RPGs hit them at Lalamay , Nangarhar province , Afghanistan on November 16, 2011.

Info from the soldier himself describing the happening:

“This was an offensive movement to a Taliban controlled village . You can hear rpgs hitting the ground around the truck in the beginning of the video. I was in the turret on a 50 cal . The first rpg hit the engine stopping the matv and lighting the cage on fire . I could feel the heat from in the turret, the 2nd rpg hit by the commanders side. After that, everyone got out to the 9 o’clock and I stayed in to provide covering and suppressive fire . While I was charging my 50 cal an rpg hit the right shield sending molten shrapnel into my body and face . I was knocked silly for about two seconds. I thanked God I survived ! My brother helped me out of the truck and I rolled into the river to put out the fire. Then I made it to safety were my brothers put a tourniquet on me , than I bounded back to the casualty collection point where I met more wounded brothers.

Since this day I’ve been trying to rebuild my life and my body if you want to help , you can donate to my crypto account. it would be greatly appreciated
