    Last Sunday, a small outpost manned by a platoon+ of 173rd Airborne paratroopers was attacked by a 300+ man force of Taliban. Nine U.S. servicemen were killed and almost everyone else wounded while the Taliban lost over 125 men killed.

    It was quite a fight:

    Stafford offered a guess as to why his fellow soldiers fought so hard.

    "Just hardcoreness I guess," he said. "Just guys kicking ass, basically. Just making sure that we look scary enough that you don’t want to come in and try to get us."



    Haha, I love this bit.

    Great story.
