Sam's Firefight on Video
Here is a 18 minute video taken over a three day period, 7-9 Oct 2007 part of the 1-501st PIR's Operation Grecko part IIIA. I am pretty sure there are several scenes of Sam's platoon, in support of Blackfoot Co. (the Buffalo clearing a damaged HUMVEE from the road 2:05; Sam's command RG-31 along side a HUMVEE firing, 4:28). At 5:50 it looks like Sam leading an unmounted patrol, walking an Iragi road. This may be the operation that Sam so vividly discribes in his firefight essey when two of is him men were wounded on 7 Oct.
