Videos: 3-17th Cav in Afghanistan

The following two videos are courtesy of LTC Thomas von Eschenbach, Lighthorse 6, from their deployment in Afghanistan which I’ve uploaded to YouTube for all to enjoy!

Note, due to copyright law, I had to mute the audio track in the first video to be accepted by YouTube, but the video is still excellent! – Bear

    My God what rugged terrain. A pressure washer for the ships. What we would have given for one of those in Nam.

      I was thinking the very same about the power washer!!! Beats lugging buckets of water or waiting for the water truck for sure.

    It is very unfortunate that I had to strip the music audio file from the A Troop video which was very well done by the young Troopers. YouTube is NOT a friendly place for creative video since Google took over the operation.
