This is war in 2012—you can literally see a soldier under fire in Afghanistan. The soldier was shot but suffered no permanent injuries. It's insane.

Here's how the soldier described the whole situation:

I got a hit a total of 4 times. My helmet cam died and i made it down the mountain on my own. I was also hit in the side of my helmet and my eye pro was shot off of my face. We were doing overwatch on the village to recon and gather intel. I was point heading down the face of the hill with the LT. when we got hit. the rest of the squad was pinned down by machine gun fire. I didn't start the video until a few mins into the firefight for obvious reasons. I came out into the open to draw fire so my squad could get to safety.

A round struck the tube by my hand of the 203 grenade launcher which knocked it out of my hands. When I picked the rifle back up it was still functional but the grenade launcher tube had a nice sized 7.62 cal bullet hole in it and was rendered useless.

The footage was shot as part of an ongoing documentary of the war in Afghanistan right now. You can follow it at Funker 530. [Funker 530 via BoingBoing]
