The American convoy

was traveling this direction.

After we realized

what happened,

There was a lady off to the side,

next to a, uh, kalat,

I started calling for the medic

over the radio,

Private Richter,

how long you been in the Army?

And, uh, it didn't need to happen.

101 over 60, pulse 72.

I looked at the eyes

of the medics,

They weren't gonna let him die.

The name of the child?

I'm very happy that he kept his leg.

We go out of our way to make sure

people like Sadiq don't get hurt.

In the end,

does it change Afghanistan?

But it saved that kid's life,

Get well. We'll see you.

I got a son, Jake,

who's 10 years old.

- Can you imagine?

- No.

Did it sink into you

that you had saved a child's life?

It did, but uh,

that's... that's why I'm here.

Afterwards, ground unit

came up by and thanked us,

This all-woman crew

I call it, you know, the band of sisters

and a little brother.

We just consider ourselves

just soldiers, like, like everyone else,

The countdown to

hugs and kisses,

I'm a mom. I understand

how every other mom feels,

Kids are the ones that usually

give all the good information.

I talked to some kids here on scene.

The villagers are the ones

that actually came to us,

Nah, I love doing this.

'Cause right now,

Yep, got the pressure plate.

But, uh, we've definitely located, uh,

one pressure plate at this time.

Front line traced to

the pressure plate,

Holy hell.

How much you think

was in there?

My intent is for us

to get in there,


But let's not do anything

fucking stupid, huh?

We have a mission tonight,

from here, past

those mountains,

I believe in each and

every one of you,

Dedicate yourself to America's battalions

and our mission.

Your measure is not found in how
