No tricks, only treats, in this week's Heroes in Action military videos. Our weekly tribute to our military service members is packed with action this week. We've got helmet cam video of a U.S. Delta Force raid at a secret ISIS prison. Then there is a Defense Department video showing actual footage of the coalition airstrike that destroyed that prison after the hostage rescue.
Along with those two U.S. military videos, we've also got a highly-explosive look at M58 Mine Clearing Line Charges (1750 lbs of C4 explosive that is approximately 350 feet long) being utilized in Afghanistan. And that's not all. There are also videos of our troops live-fire training with mortars, machine guns and helicopters along with two other action-packed videos.
Viewing videos of our United States Military's weapons technology in action is always a treat. However, let's not forget what this weekly Heroes in Action military videos blog post is all about - our brave women and men who protect our freedom and our country both past and present.
The team at Hero Giveaways thanks you for your service and sacrifice!
Military news blog BuiltUSA shared the following helmet cam video of the ISIS prison hostage rescue involving U.S. special operations troops along with Kurdish and Iraq forces. The helmet cam video shows scenes of freed prisoners running across a danger area as gunfire can be heard in the background, along with U.S. Army Delta operators waiting inside a room as hostages are searched.
The operation resulted in the rescue of approximately 70 hostages. Unfortunately, there was also one U.S. military casualty as Master Sgt. Joshua L. Wheeler became the first U.S. service member to die in the ground fight against ISIS in Iraq during this operation.
