Counter battery ownage!




I don't know the details from this video, or where it took place. The bad guys like to film their work, and sometimes they get smoke checked before they can collect the footage and our Soldiers and Marines find the camera.

I have been on the receiving end of 155mm fire before, due to very close proximity to an impact area that had some short rounds land on the edge of our sleeping area. That is a terrifying sound and feeling that I will never ever forget! I've also been at the receiving end of some insurgent rocket and morter fire, which was scary for sure, but just does not compare to those one-five-fives!
