What Being Blown Up Feels Like - [Iraq - 2007]

Published May 19, 2021

If you've ever wondered what it's like inside of a vehicle seconds before and seconds after an IED strike, this video gives you the answer in about 30 seconds flat.


2007 was an interesting time to be in Iraq. Some parts of the country were fully pacified, other parts were still seeing crazy firefights every day. Regardless of the general mood of the area of operations you were in however, there was still an absolute constant threat of improvised explosive devices detonating underneath your vehicle as you traversed the area.


When you get blown up, there isn't always someone to shoot at. You don't always get ambushed right after the fact. Sometimes, you just get blown up and there isn't a damn thing you or anyone else can do about it except accept the fact that you just got blown up.


This video does a great job of conveying the feeling of being blown up by an improvised explosive device. I'm not exactly sure which unit this was, as the video wasn't posted with very much information. All we know about it is that it happened in Iraq back in 2007. If you are in this video, or this video comes from your unit, please let us know so we can update the video with more context for future viewers.
