250 Taliban Ambushers Beaten by "Bailout Fatigue" and 30 Marines, But Mostly 30 Marines

30 vs. 250. Wow.

Although every man in such a victory is obviously crucial, one man racked up the Legolas Award for most orcs killed.

During the battle, the designated marksman single handedly thwarted a company-sized enemy RPG and machinegun ambush by reportedly killing 20 enemy fighters with his devastatingly accurate precision fire. He selflessly exposed himself time and again to intense enemy fire during a critical point in the eight-hour battle for Shewan in order to kill any enemy combatants who attempted to engage or maneuver on the Marines in the kill zone. What made his actions even more impressive was the fact that he didn’t miss any shots, despite the enemies’ rounds impacting within a foot of his fighting position.

“I was in my own little world,” the young corporal said. “I wasn’t even aware of a lot of the rounds impacting near my position, because I was concentrating so hard on making sure my rounds were on target.”

50 Taliban were killed. The rest fled.

Thanks to Confederate Yankee.
