Gates of Fire.


This is a fantastic front line account of a close quarter battle with terrorists in Iraq.  There are more stories like this at the Michael Yon Site.  This particular incident is dated. 

BamBamBamBam!Bullets were hitting all around Kurilla. The young 2nd lieutenant and specialist were the only two soldiers near. Neither had real combat experience. “AH” had no weapon. I had a camera.

Seconds count.

Kurilla, though down and unable to move, was fighting and firing, yelling at the two young soldiers to get in there; but they hesitated. BamBamBamBam!
