Sacrifice for Freedom

Posted by XeRefer on Nov. 11, 2008

This video, is of an ambush I was directly involved in. At the beginning of the video you see a ton of smoke about three hundred meters to the front of this convoy, a roadside bomb went off, and blew apart the front vehicle, I was vehicle two. I am in that mushroom cloud, taking RPG fire, and small arms fire. Some of you question, why are we over there in the first place, we don't need to be in Afghanistan. Yes, we do. My brothers and I volunteered to go over there so they aren't placing bombs in our country, or driving car bombs into buildings in OUR country. We are over there, bleeding and dying on their soil, so YOU, don't have to have a second thought about going to Dunkin Donuts to get a coffee, or that trip home on the holiday to see your family, so you can go on with your life, and be... free. Choose who you want to hang out with, do whatever you want to go out and do, love who you want to love, be who you want to be. In this ambush, I lost four of my brothers, their blood was spilled for our country.
