In a new release from the Department of Defense, Soldiers and Marines are shown digging positions and emplacing indirect fire support weapon systems in the Sinjar region of Iraq. Their mission is to provide indirect fire support for Iraqi troops and Americans in advise and assist roles on the front-lines against the Islamic State near their area of operations.
While these Americans are deployed just slightly behind the front-lines, there is still a near constant threat of Islamic State activity in their region. As a counter-measure, they have built up earthen berms and defensive positions to better help them defend their positions and cannons from direct assaults that the Islamic State may try to conduct against them.
The video you are about to watch is a brief video that was released in both Arabic and English by the Department of Defense. It gives a solid break-down of Operation Inherent Resolve’s latest joint-offensive operation against the Islamic State, called Operation Roundup. Stay tuned to Funker530 for more information and combat footage coming directly from the Department of Defense.

A number of our community members are present in the Discord to meet up and play video games with like-minded veterans from our sister project Funker Gaming, but we are now extending an open invitation to anyone who wants to join us for regular chat shenanigans. Facebook and Youtube are now severely limiting our reach, making it very difficult for us to reach our own audience, which is why we are going to start a minor migration to Discord to stay in touch with our core audience. We hope to see you there.
