COMBAT STORIES FROM Iraq

Andrew Witzel | 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion - Marines

8:04   |   During the Battle of Fallujah, Andrew Witzel's unit was tasked with securing the two bridges where a mob had lynched American contractors. Then, they set up a blocking position on the Fallujah peninsula. His light armored vehicle had already taken an IED blast before they got there and, before they would leave, it would take an even bigger one that nearly knocked it out of the war. (Caution: strong language.)
