Alpha 1-87 IN 10th MTN charges head first into an enemy ambush. Skip to 2:20 to begin if you want. Basically we were on a cache search when we hit an enemy ambush from about 30-50 meters away, you can hear the bullets going by Gannon’s head. Gannon leads his SAW gunner to fight through the ambush and sets up a base of fire for the rest of the squad to reach him from the open field, un-noticed valor that goes on everyday in Afghanistan and Iraq. Unfortunately the camera is knocked off mid way through the video and pretty much just for audio.
