    This is my platoon's moto video from our Afghanistan deployment that we just got back from, this video isn't our battalion or even our company, this is all just my platoon. We saw a lot over there and this vid doesn't even touch on 1% of our deployment but it's a nice little taste. The videos of the bombs being dropped and the air, cobra's, etc. smoking the Taliban were all called in by us. There's one clip from Fox News in there of us that Ollie North and his camera man shot and gave to us which was pretty cool.

    Anyways, here's our vid: http://www.spike.com/video/us-marines-in/3059630

    the very best memories of action during my deployment are stored in my brain. The few times that I or one of my men snapped pictures or videos was when we did a blow-in-place or after the bullets/rpgs/etc stopped flying.

    I would love to put together a helmet cam. I might do that on my next deployment if I can find something that would be small enough to not get in the way.

    Oh they've had those for awhile, but the quality still isn't good.



    I'm going to take my Canon video camera that records in 1080p :drool:

    The video isn't even 1% of the shit we saw over there. We got into a countless number of firefights where we didn't have the cameras rolling, that whole video despite a million clips of action is really just two or three firefights we got into. I don't have any footage of us going house to house killing mooj, no footage of when any of the guys on my platoon got hit, etc. because those were the firefights where we didn't have time to pull out a camera.
