9:56   |   Everyone remembers Black Hawk Down but the incident portrayed in that movie was not the first time a Black Hawk helicopter was shot down in Mogadishu. Squad leader Olin Rossman woke up to the words, "Get up and get your squad. We have a bird down." He joined the convoy headed to the crash site. Part 1 of 2. (Caution: strong language)
