US Marines in Afghanistan, Part Deuce

2 short videos of the 24th MEU in Afghanistan...
(By the way, this was one of the many posts stuck in draft mode in my blogger account)
Video 1
Video 2

On a related note, opswarfare is reading One Bullet Away by Nathaniel Fick. One good lesson learned from the book is the so called "Five Bullets".
  1. mission statement
  2. challenge and password
  3. rules of engagement
  4. lost Marine plan
  5. escape and recovery plan
This is a good checklist for use in training, to help facilitate when actual ops occur.
