Nate Winkler | Marine Air Control Squadron 2 (MACS-2) - Marines

7:58   |   The convoy had come under Iraqi fire, so the Marines were scrambling to set up a defensive position. Nate Winkler had a technical job, but he was still a Marine in a battle.

Later, with the convoy back on the move, there was a grim realization that made everyone feel guilty. Part 2 of 3.
