A platoon of Stryker infantrymen are engaged in a firefight in Afghanistan when one of the soldiers fires a LAW rocket launcher. Although he does check his backblast area, a running soldier enters it just as he fires the rocket. The backblast knocks the soldier to the ground. Luckily no one is seriously hurt and the troops laugh it off.
