Alright, listen up ladies, I've got some videos to share. Ever since I was detached from my unit, and "volun-told" to help work with a newly arrived guard unit, I've found all this free time. (these ass clowns have some chewed up equipment, so for the first time in Iraq, I've had maintenance-down days). Anyway, I'm getting bored, so I thought I share some military fun:
This is what it looks like to be screaming over the Iraqi landscape. Notice at the very beginning of the video, flares are deployed. It is a common misconception that the enemy only fire RPGs at us, when the truth is, they've got an impressive cache of manpads. Scary shit. Anyway, house-top level at a 150kts is an incredible rush! Good I love this job:
Here's a good video of air drops gone wrong. Remember folks, if you want to airlift equipment, don't airdrop! SLING LOAD!
Ok, I will let the next video speak for itself:
And before all of you start shaking your heads and joke how stupid haji can be... well we Americans aren't that better:
Why do we wear our body armor, boys and girls? Because it works!!!
Interesting note on this video. The soldier who was shot was a field medic. Seconds after this video, these two snipers were spotted and shot. When the Americans came upon the two snipers, they were still alive, and the field medic... who they just shot... gave them life saving medical treatment. THIS is what seperates us from them.
Hope you all enjoyed the good times!
