  1. this guy is in my company and i just can’t sit by the soldier in this video was most certainly not shot at all in the chest. he decided to move down the mountain which was a bad idea he had good cover where he was, after that he got hit by some rocks from a round the hit the one he was behind and had an injury to his finger and arm which was fixed by our medic with some bandages he then spent a week or so on the COP and was sent home for a broken foot which he claims was from the fall you see in the video but i seen him the same day walking just fine.

  2. @ Joseph — this is a Soldier. You can see his Multicam trousers in portions of the video. As far as I know, Marines are still wearing their MARPAT in-theatre.
