FUNKER530 - Veteran Community & Combat Footage Featuring: U.S. Soldiers Eliminate Taliban Fighters

The cameraman had this to say to after submitting the footage to FUNKER530: This patrol was a relief in place and I was on point leading the new guys in for the RIP. We hadn't taken much contact in this area, and it was generally considered a "safe" zone in Logar Province. [Video below]

We patrolled the area frequently, and the locals would regularly thank us for pushing the Taliban away from their village so they could live their daily lives without constant threat.

The Taliban that we came across during this patrol were actually setting up to shoot down our new surveillance balloon that was launched in the area. The balloon caught the entire fight on camera from above, which confirmed that we killed 3 Taliban fighters during this engagement.
I saw the first guy shoulder his RPG, take a knee, and point it directly at me from about 15 meters away. I'm not sure if it was luck, but I shot first and hit him twice. The rest of the team engaged immediately after.
I wanted to share the video with the world because I was sick of hearing all the ignorant things said about what we are doing over there. People need to understand what it's like on the ground for the troops on the front line, and see what we have to deal with on a daily basis without some political spin on the story.
At the end of the day there were no friendly casualties, and we had eliminated 3 Taliban fighters. This footage has been edited to exclude the close up graphic footage of the enemy KIA.


This footage is part of an ongoing documentary of the war in Afghanistan from the soldiers' point of view.
