Pendant que les derniers troupes Canadiens déployés en Afghanistan retournaient de leur déploiement, un autre soldat Canadien s’est suicidé. 

R.I.P. Caporal-Chef Alain Lacasse du 3ème Bataillon, Royal 22ème Régiment.

C’est absolument inacceptable que des soldats Canadiens continuent à mourir long après la fin de leurs déploiements. C’est inacceptable que des hommes et femmes prêtent à sacrifier leurs vies pour leurs pays continuent à tomber victime à l’intérieur de nos propres frontières de choses qu’ils ont vécu autrepart.

Special Forces raid a house with ANA soldiers, only to be ambushed inside the house itself.

A round impacts the ANA soldier’s magazine (seen in the second gif, watch for sparks).

Apparently the ANA soldier who cut and ran was killed outside the compound, but the SF killed the ambushing insurgent and captured at least two others.

Shit.

This rifle. It has seen some shit.

And if it was an AK it’d still work.

Plenty of ARs have seen serious action and still worked, just like there are plenty of shitty AKs - like the WASR.

Does anyone know if this one still works? I’d eat my own fingers if the optics are still good.

I don’t know sadly, don’t even know the story behind it. Would love to, even if it’d be depressing as hell.

coup-de-sang:

TARIN KOT, AFGHANISTAN — Corporal Cameron Baird, MG, of the Australian 2nd Commando Regiment, is carried by his comrades to a waiting C-130 Hercules. Baird was killed by small-arms fire on 22 June 2013 during an engagement with insurgents.
Baird had served in East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan, having been awarded the Medal for Gallantry for his actions while clearing a Taliban stronghold in November 2007. Then a Lance Corporal, he recovered a wounded comrade under heavy fire and then led a close-quarters assault on the compound, clearing it room-by-room with his section.
Lest we forget.
