WASHINGTON, July 21, 2009 -- Embedded above is a b-roll video of soldiers entering the village of Alsbad to talk with village leaders in the Korengal Valley of Afghanistan on July 6. The elders were away and soldiers observed several fighting positions above the village of Donga across the river. The platoon made its way to Donga where elements of the patrol came under small arms fire from a nearby ridge while investigating the positions above the village. Soldiers put down suppressive fire and destroyed the enemy position with 120 mm mortar support from Korengal Outpost. (Video by Sgt. Justin Puetz, 5th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment.
