Marines Appreciate Air Support During the Siege of Fallujah



I took this video during the First Battle of Fallujah in April '04. When we heard the Spectre Gunships whirring overhead at night we got an extra sense of security because the insurgents knew what they sounded like too, and learned to keep their heads down during that time. When we were in our sleeping holes trying to fall asleep, the whirring was like a lullaby, rocking us to sleep.

But we would also get excited when watching the helicopter door gunners "get some."

It was as if we knew that someone in the city was experiencing the same anguish that we experienced during mortar attacks.

Who were the Symbionese Liberation Army and why did they have so many "intelligent" friends?
