What do you think this Afghanistan – US Army Turret Gunner Gets Wounded By RPG Shrapnel During Heavy Firefight With Taliban video?
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
