Welcome to Iraq, where you roll around in a steel deathtrap waiting for the IED with your name on it. This video shows half of the emotional roller coaster that is the infantryman mindset. They lived, and they’re all incredibly high on adrenaline, laughing and trash-talking. This is one of the greatest days of these men’s lives, and they will never forget it. Just as easily, the IED could have hit them or the truck ahead of them. For the survivors, it would be the worst day of their lives, and still, they would never forget it.
