    Default Aussie SAS Operater Gets shot During Firefight, So He...

    ...Ties himself to his landrover top keep on fighting:

    Lashed to vehicle in Afghanistan, wounded SAS soldier fought on
    By Ian McPhedran

    Article from: The Courier-Mail

    DESPITE being shot twice during an ambush in Afghanistan, an SAS soldier lashed himself to the front of his patrol vehicle so he wouldn't be left behind if he passed out from loss of blood and kept on fighting.

    The Digger is expected to be recommended for a high level bravery award.

    Suffering from serious upper body wounds, the soldier struggled on to the front of his SAS long range patrol vehicle (LRPV) and, under heavy fire, used a rope to attach himself firmly between the vehicle's bull bar and radiator.

    Once he was secured, and there was no chance that he would fall off if he fainted, he picked up his rifle and resumed firing at the enemy during a two-hour fighting withdrawal.

    SAS troops and their special forces comrades from the Commando Regiment are well aware of the slow and painful death that awaits them if they are captured by the Taliban.

    The Digger, who cannot be identified, faded in and out of consciousness, emptying several magazines as volleys of enemy rounds and rocket propelled grenades, rained down around him.

    He was finally evacuated from the battle field at high speed still lashed to the front of the LRPV...

    <...>

    ...A source told The Courier-Mail the Digger was now "up and about" and would recover fully from his serious gunshot wounds. His heroic deeds will be recognised when he is recommended for a high level bravery award.

    Several others engaged in the do-or-die battle on September 2 are also in line for top honours...
    I figured that in a week where some bitch fakes a political/racial attack, some dipshit highschooler may have spread AIDS to 50 classmates and political candidates spent the week making excuses and passed blame to others that I'd post a story about a real-man type who didn't let a little thing like getting shot ruin a good shootout.
