    US Special Forces bringback - OEF

    Post by MyZone on Thu Mar 24, 2011 2:37 pm

    This is a Russian belt that was graciously given to me by an active US 7th Group Special Forces operator. He has been in Afghanistan twice.. I would call him an acquaintance rather than a friend (I'm not high speed enough to roll with him)....

    At any rate, he stated he had pulled this off a "still warm" Taliban KIA (one of many) that his team dispatched on a particular mission in 2008. He described the location as out in the middle of nowhere.

    This operator was also awarded the Silver Star for action during that tour. He carried a wounded team member (on his shoulder) out of an ambush site under heavy direct fire. He took a shot in the ACH and ESAPI right-side plate....he showed me the "lifesavers".

    Interesting piece. I wonder if the Talib he acquired the belt from picked it up in a similar matter back in the 1980s... Question

    I wonder if the Taliban in question was very weel informed on the Soviet Union's firm anti religion policy when he thought it'd be a good idea to wear it Laughing

    Not too mention that many Arab/Muslim countries were firm allies with the Nazi's in their anti-seminite philosphies.
