People have been going to war for ages, but it wasn’t until video made a debut during the Vietnam War when we began to see what was really happening on the battlefield.

As a military unit was on patrol in Afghanistan, a few marines were making their way towards the front of a building when all of a sudden one of them was hit in the helmet by enemy fire.

A sniper located on the south-side of the building managed to land the shot.

If it hadn’t been for his helmet and a whole lot of luck, this soldier would’ve been killed instantly.

Thanks to a bodycam we’re able to see this complete chaos. In today’s techno world everything gets recorded, so we seldom miss a beat.
