FARAH PROVINCE, Afghanistan — In the city of Shewan, approximately 250 insurgents ambushed 30 Marines and paid a heavy price for it.
After calling for close-air support, the small group of Marines pushed forward and broke the enemies’ spirit as many of them dropped their weapons and fled the battlefield. At the end of the battle, the Marines had reduced an enemy stronghold, killed more than 50 insurgents and wounded several more.
“I didn’t realize how many bad guys there were until we had broken through the enemies’ lines and forced them to retreat. It was roughly 250 insurgents against 30 of us,” the corporal said. “It was a good day for the Marine Corps. We killed a lot of bad guys, and none of our guys were seriously injured.”
Proving once again why the “insurgents” don’t stand a chance, anywhere, against our boys. And check out the full story for the goods: a young corporal, who requested to remain anonymous, took out twenty insurgents even as enemy fire landed within a foot of him. Even more impressive? He didn’t miss a single shot.
“Mess with the best…”
