A Special Forces Veteran Remembers: “I Thought I Was Going to Die” (Part I) | Havok Journal

There were many times in Afghanistan that I thought I could die, but there were only two times that I thought I was going to die for certain.   The first time that I thought I was going die was on my first deployment, the second time was when I was shot.

We had three weeks left in my first deployment when the order came down for our team to do a helicopter assault south of our base. Due to a lack of air support in the previous six and half months, this would only be our second air assault mission.
