I served with 1/5 in 2003 as a Forward Observer. The battle portrayed in video 4 is one of the least known battles of the invasion. 1/5 took over 80 casualties in about 10 hours of fighting. It seems to have been forgotten by most of the history books that have been written lately.

If your interested in learing more about 1/5 and there battle to take Iraq. Check out this following book and video.

A Table in the Presence by Lt. Carey H. Cash. Written by the Chaplain. It's religous but gives great accounts of some of the battles.



You can also read this book. Oliver North traveled with 5th marines during the invasion. He describes some of the battles 1/5 fought in.



The Fight for Baghdad This is a discovery channel documentary. In the last 15 minutes it dedicated to the above battle. You will see several Marines talk about being shot etc...

WOW

Those clips are awesome I would really like to see the whole movie. Make good use of music from the Blackhawk Down and We Were Soliders sound tracks.

I sent a link to Blackfive.net for him to check out. He helped get the ball rolling on Gunner Palace.

I'm going to tell him about that the next time I talk to him. I just really want to see the whole thing and my wife is most interested to see what had gone on there also.
