Soldier Shot in the Back, Firefight Ensues

Posted by on

Soldiers on a small firebase are surprised with a sudden Taliban attack.

Instantly, one of the U.S. troops is shot in the back. The cameraman quickly, and inaccurately assessed the wound, and thought that the bullet stopped in the plate. He begins suppressing the woodline with a M240B light machine gun. Soon, fellow troops are checking on the wounded man and discover that the round didn’t stop in the plate, but actually entered his body. They begin stripping him of his armor and gear to treat his wound.
