Video of Incident from "Acceptable Loss" book

Postby Smitty14 » Sun Mar 19, 2017 5:44 pm

For those of you that have read "Acceptable Loss" by Kregg Jorgenson, I stumbled across video from a CBS news crew that was there when he was shot in the legs on patrol. I've read that book several times and remember reading of that incident so it was strange to find a video. If you've read the book it's a very brief look at a couple guys from his platoon and him as well. For those that haven't read the book I'd highly recommend it.

Thanks Smitty. I have read the book, but it was a long time ago. I will go to the video and see if it jogs my memory. Then I will probably have to read the book again.

It mentions him by last name and a couple other guys plus the unit so I double checked the book to make sure it was what I thought it was.
