Hopefully, you will never have to experience or get into harms way as these men of the 101st Airborne did. But in every home/vehicle or active shooter defense scenario. If given a chance to foil an attack, you might want to do so in a similar fashion as these Airborne troopers.
But seriously for us private citizens just remember wherever you’re at either at the mall or in your car. Get out of the area and run (or drive)as fast as you can to safety then call for help.
Taliban Takes Shots At US Soldiers And Gets A Proper Reply
Chris Fields: So I’ve got a little bit of movement in the little tertiary valley to the left.
Joel Vowell: There’s movement up there?
CF: There’s three dudes.
“They hit the vehicle.”
“Right. So good luck [indistinguishable]”
“WOAH SON OF A BITCH.”
“That shot right through us sir, right here.”
Mike Boettcher: Is that what they just shot?
CF: Yeah, it’s a Dishka round.
MB: Still warm.
“Yeah we’ve got a bunch of these, and we were just shot at by the enemy by the hillside. This is a Dishka round, little over 12 milimeter diameter round. Very deadly when it hits you.”
CF: LET’S GET IT ON!
Come on! Let’s go! Get it up and fire!
CF: Come on, Gunner. You’ve gotta be quicker than that! Get that bitch hot!
And then watch me, hey, I’ll either go up, left, right, or back.
Up higher. Fire away.
“HE’S STILL TOO LOW.”
CF: Nice, good shot.
Enemy Radio Update: One person is injured now. To the legs.
“One person injured.”
ERU: He’s okay, but his leg is hurt.
“They’re reporting everything is okay right now”.
“It’s not gonna be okay. They don’t know what’s about to hit ’em.”
[Indistinguishable] “…And get ’em right above that flat rock face, over.”
JV: Roger that, I need you to get left of that, there’s a red trail up on the left side of that. Gimmee uh, three shots right there for right now, we’re gonna walk you right on up.
[Shots, jets, explosion]
Yeah, good hit.
JV: That’ll teach ’em to shoot at my soldiers.
“Hey let’s get another target worked up.”
[explosion] “Woah baby.”
“207 Dark Knight 42, good bombs, good bombs.”
“False bravado involved. They see us, they’ve been watching us for a while, they’re moving into position, they don’t think we can harm them, nah, they just haven’t fought us yet.”
[Some bicycles chime as they pass]
Cameraman: How close were those bullets coming to you? You were close enough to hear the BZZZZ go by, huh?
Soldier: Gunfire buzzes when it’s close enough to you, it sounds like a bee passing over your shoulder, and that’s when we knew that things were serious.
