In an earlier TFB TV episode, we covered some of the experiences that combat veterans have gone through while under fire. We continue that discussion in this final episode, going into much more detail about some of the nuances and specific aspects of being in combat and actually returning fire back at the enemy. We also discuss some of the issues in today’s generation of infantry, dealing with such issues as strict rules of engagement and acquiring positive identification of enemy combatants.
Note that all the footage in these two episodes is only from 1st Battalion, 9th Marines and the deployments during Operation Enduring Freedom in Helmand province, Afghanistan. Apart from a small clip from the public domain site Dvids of Marines at a range, all of the footage here was shot on our deployments and isn’t simply “stock”.
