So what was it like to fight in the 1990’s as a 0351 Assaultman? Well, if your good with over 150 pounds of gear, fighting in urban terrain with a 72 Kilometer stealthy walk into danger, then this is what it looks like. This a picture of Loadout Room writer Richard Moore and his good friend during the fighting at Khafgi. Those are 12.7 rounds from T-72 tanks in the wall. That night we hammered the enemy with 16” guns from the Battleship Missouri. That’s firepower!
