Friend of mine in my fire team had a digital audio recorder in his pocket during a battle, he got some neat stuff on tape.

Warning: first audio has civilians screaming and bad guys are actually being killed while it is happening, I dont know if anyone would be offended by hearing this, I thought I should just let people know.....

Story on this one: Going house to house during the battle, my squad runs across a big road to a house, I kick in the door walk in, see a family, get engaged from someone I cant see up the stairs, he hits about a foot above my head, a man in the family group down the stairs trys to pull a gun from behind him, I shoot him, we run out and try to throw a frag after the guy up the stairs. When we move back outside we come under heavy fire, we cant move left or right of the house. We call on the radio and get covering fire and run back across the road, thats when all hell breaks loose, when we start running across the road, the bad guys pop out and shoot as us, our covering units all shoot at them, HUGE amounts of fire. Starting at 9:10 into the audio the large volume of fire starts if you are too lazy to listen to the whole thing.

Us talking about going back to the house, then going back into it (you can hear an AK shooting at us in this one, also can hear us clear the house and call stuff out, kinda neat)

"Ohhhhhhh sh*t!"

Quintisentially American reaction to various
situations from really good to really bad.

Holy crap that's alot of shootin!

Not during those sound clips.

3 Marines died in the battle, I believe 2 from 3/25 and 1 from 3/2

The 3/2 guy was tricked, came into a house, old man told them no bad guys in the house, when they walked further in, a foreign fighter fired from upstairs and threw down grenades at the Marines that came in.

The 3/25 guys didnt clear a house, decided to walk past it and got shot in the back.

They told us we/air killed around 500-750 insurgents.

One of them is yelling allah akbar alot. The other people in the house claimed that one of the guys in the family group was thier father and crying "why mister why shoot father!". Turns out that guy was the head of the foriegn figthers in the area and not at all related to them.

Also during the whole battle they were in a mosque broadcasting over speakers JIHAD ALLAH AKBAR GIBBERISH GIBBERISH. Wish I had that on audio.

Do they allow you to watch "Team America" over there, or is that not PC like alcohol?

I'd probably get in trouble because I couldn't stop saying "durka durka" constantly.

We actually got bootleg team america copies from some Hadjis. Then they sold it in the PX. Someone actually bought the soundtrack from the PX and thats where I got the audio for that video from,

Hey RustedAce! My computer starting playing, "Oh no snakes! No, it's a trouser snake". I thought you were announcing you were coming out of the closet with the audio clips.

Then the gunfight audio started playing. Apparently, quicktime player had cached the Bareback Mountain parody and was playing it while the file was downloading. I had to do a double take, and my chairborne butt almost fell down to the floor.

Do our troops usually have that kind of impact?

I hope you don't mind me asking, it would just be somewhat comforting to know that there are a lot more bad guys than good guys getting killed.

Thanks for all you're doing!!!

We faught two big battles, I believe the numbers for the other one were similiar. Also randomly we would kill bad guys who ran check points with car bombs etc. I would like to see a study on how many badies America has killed.

Robert,

It would be outstanding if you broke in and narrated the events as they occur on the tape as it is seriously confusing on the large audio download.

I hear alot of children and women crying and one male voice going on and on...

To follow it, while listening to you overdubbing audio commentary would be insane man...

Just a suggestion.

And you and your fellow Marines have my undying respect and thanks.

Good job, sir!

Dram sends

I tried to narrate as best I could with the paragraph before, the first shots right before the screaming starts are me getting shot at and returning fire. Just ask if you want anything else explained better. I am not tech savvy enough to narrate.

Alot of them are tanks shooting, some are grenades. There was a tank shooting like 10 feet from my head during some of that, I am so deaf now.

They probably dont like tanks and shit shooting next to them? They probably dont like the bad guy who was in there with them being blown away and laying in there bleeding out in the room? I dunno! hahah.

Is that permanent?
Link Posted: 2/6/2006 6:52:13 AM EDT
I think it's safe to say that most hearing damage is permanent. The pressure wave off a 120mm cannon is a little over kill for the humane ear.


Do you guys wear any ear protection at all?

I would think the electronic ear muffs would be common by now but maybe they get in the way or something.

Anyone there use the electronic inner ear plugs?

No sweat RustedAce,

It would just be awesome to hear you overdubbing the actual sound saying ".... now here is where Hadji gets the good news when he pulls a pistol on me.. "BANGBANGBANGBANG".... and that right there is him sounding unsure of how well he liked the good news I gave him.... BOOOOM.... that noise was my hearing heading down-range with a main gun round from a tank... "

Would be cool, although just having this is incredible. Not many vets can say, yeah this here is a recording of a firefight I was in outside of "thiscity" and be able to play it. Even if they cant hear it themselves


Thanks again RA.


I sent this to my former Marine buddy that was in GW1, and I am waiting for him to listen in.


He eats this stuff up... he wanted to go back in for round 2 and finish the job..., amazing how many guys who would have chucked their whole career to rejoin if they did not have a wife with kids/mortgage etc hanging around their neck.

Word was that the Navy had come up with some treatment for sound related hearing damage, but I haven't heard anything about it in a while.

I had some foamy ear plugs I was wearing before, but I lost them at some point during the battle. Thankfully I had them in when I shot my AT4, or I would be extra deaf. haha

I dont know if it is permanent or not, I can still hear ok, but much much worse than before.
