U.S Soldier surviving Taliban small arms fire after being struck a few times. No rounds penetrated his armor, what a lucky guy.

Here’s what he had to say in an interview about the video;

 ” 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. A round struck the tube by my hand of the 203 grenade launcher which knocked it out of my hands. When I picked the rifle back up it was still functional but the grenade launcher tube had a nice sized 7.62 cal bullet hole in it and was rendered useless.”


This guy is a bad ass mother fucker 

Lucky.

Their impending defeat obvious, the survivors rally around the flag.
No caption in my book, so I’m not sure, but they look French or Prussian probably.

The British Grand Fleet at sea. Depending on formation, the battle line could stretch for over 10 miles, which, as the fleet was still very dependent on signal flags, led to very inefficient communications.
