this is the helmet my brother gave to me before he went to afganistain . he said the he has newer helmet now. but i thought this would make a good item for my collection. he said there were giveing the taliban a run for there money over there. they where at the same base with some US guys. but said a insident took place over there when the boys were on parade in the base. a ANA soldier started to open fire on them my brother was shot threw the leg and some were wounded and some brave men were killed. but my brother said he was throwen to the ground did not fell that he was hit at the time. he said he looked up on the mound were this ANA guys was unloading on them and with out thinking coked his gun and with the help of his side kick droped the ANA man in his place. i would like to finish this by saying im am so proud of all the men and women who are serving or haved served. its becouse of you guys we live in all the great places we do. thank you. my brother is back on 100% duty now to. but he and we still will remember those that did not come back. also his good mate that fell that day... . thanks for all that will have a look.
