Another amazing video from photojournalist Dan Shakal shows the moment a Soldier is almost killed by an incoming tracer round during a Taliban ambush.


If you're not familiar with the work Dan Shakal did in Afghanistan back in 2010, you should go check more of his stuff out. He's an amazing photojournalist who did a really good job while embedded with the 101st Airborne in Afghanistan.


Here's a direct quote on this video from Shakal. "I shot this video during "Operation Dragon Strike" (Zhari District, Kandahar, Afghanistan) in the summer of 2010. The Soldiers are from the 101st Airborne Division, the "Black Hearts". We were ambushed in a dried up canal, Taliban guns fired on us from about 30 feet away. The fight was going on for about 25 seconds before I could get the camera up and running. You can see a tracer round just inches away at 0:01​. Some how we all made it out uninjured, I believe I was the only on with minor bullet fragment wounds on my right arm and a small piece in the neck."
