The Fight for Baqubah (Again)

Here is some "B-Roll" from SPC Jason Puetz of Soldiers from 5th Battalion, 20th Infantry  Regiment (Ft. Lewis, Strykers) engaging insurgents in heavy fighting while clearing a neighborhood in Baqubah. Scenes includes Soldiers fighting in the streets and on rooftops, moving under cover of smoke and Apache helicopters flying overhead.  The interview with Sergeant First Class Lacrosse is definitely worth your time as he describes the process of positively identifying a terrorist ("PID") by his weapon system.

Be patient, YouTube is taking a bit longer than normal to process the video (only 7MBs).
