Thread: CNN: Inside a Firefight with the Taliban

    Default CNN: Inside a Firefight with the Taliban

    Pretty cool vid:

    http://cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/...fight.cnn.html

    Can anyone ID the unit? They are wearing tons of patches. My best guess is Army special forces...

    Army Special Forces. It stands in the description and is even mentioned in the video itself.

    The description just says "U.S. Special Forces". I might have missed where they mentioned it in the video.

    You´re right. Sorry. The media often labels all U.S. SOF as "Special Forces", but my guess would be Army Special Forces anyway.

    "A soldier reloads, preparing for another assault", quality journalism over there.

    Btw.
    Dude at 3:00 is wearing the CCN Recon Virginia patch.

    With the red scarf you see a CST member I guess ...


    What does "CCN Recon Virginia" means? Please put me in the right way again.

    CCN = Command & Control North, detachment of MACV-SOG during the Vietnam War; RT Virginia = Recon(naissance) Team Virginia.

    I still kinda laughed when the Afghan soldier pressed a suspect's head into sitting the ***** down.

    Sorry, my fault. I thought it was the same like in 3:07, but it looks more like the one from 1:10 on the upper left arm. (Maybe some MACV-SOG-Derivate?)
