Soldier at Small OP in Korengal Valley Nearly Killed by RPG

Published Jan. 30, 2022

A Soldier moving through OP Pride Rock in the Korengal Valley is nearly killed when an RPG directly impacts the sandbag wall he's using for cover.


I wish there was more context with this video. Specifically I'd love to know around what time frame it was filmed, and what the exact unit was that was involved in this specific firefight. What we're looking at here is most likely members of the U.S. Army engaged with the Taliban inside of the Korengal Valley. I'm guessing it's the U.S. Army anyways, based on the fact that very few Marines operated in that area of operations after 2007 when the majority of the Marine Corps was removed from Afghanistan to pump up the numbers in Iraq.


The Soldier that is recording appears to be moving in between positions to relay information to other troops at the OP. Just before the RPG impacts, we can hear him yelling at another Soldier to get the MK-19 up and into the fight. When the explosion goes off, the Soldier raises his rifle over the sandbags, and then thinks better of it before ducking back down behind cover.
