USMC Helicopter Ambushed by Taliban

"Summer 2011, Approximately 40 Marines from Lima Co. 3rd Battalion 4th Marines are dropped off by two CH-53's in the 'green zone' in Helmand province to check out a few suspect buildings. During the wait for the 53's to pick us up the Taliban set in all around our position and waited for the helicopters to return. As you can see it took two tries for the pilot to actually land because the LZ was too 'hot'. The whole ordeal lasted about 3.5hours. Enjoy. Filmed on an iPhone 4."
