In this footage from the War in Afghanistan, a US soldier takes heavy fire during a firefight against Taliban fighters.
He is hit multiple times as he attempts to return fire. Fortunately, none of the rounds penetrated his armor.
Here is part of the video description from Funker530 on Youtube:
“I got a hit a total of 4 times. My helmet cam died and i made it down the mountain on my own. I was also hit in the side of my helmet and my eye pro was shot off of my face. We were doing overwatch on the village to recon and gather intel. I was point heading down the face of the hill with the LT. when we got hit. the rest of the squad was pinned down by machine gun fire. I didn’t start the video until a few mins into the firefight for obvious reasons. I came out into the open to draw fire so my squad could get to safety.”
