US Army Helmet Camera

We came across this great video montage showing combat action as well as a bit of levity with down time, putting Cyalume to good use. This is probably some of the better first hand footage we have seen from Soldiers in Afghanistan. This particular soldier was filming in ISAF Region Command Southeast.

It is pretty surreal seeing them fight amid fields of giant pot plants as well as the lack of interest from the sole elderly Afghan local shown tootleing along on his bike in the middle of the firefight. You also see a sign of the times when a typical Vietnam era soundtrack cuts short and he whips out a Smartphone to take a shot of the sun setting. Kudos to the decent filming and editing work.
