On patrol with the 173rd ABCT on the Afghanistan-Pakistan Border

Robin and Linda both send the link to this 27-minute C-Span documentary about the 503rd PIR of the 173rd ABCT at COP Spira and OP East. Great insight from freelance journalist Doug Grindle during his fifth trip to Afghanistan this winter. He was embedded with the 173rd in the mountains of Khost Province in eastern Afghanistan as they patrol the border with Pakistan.

Soldiers interviewed are: PVT Andrew Felder, SSG Michael Gorman, SSG Ronaldo Gotierrez, CPT Chris Hammonds, 1LT Andrew Peppler, 1LT Walter Spangler, all of the 503rd PIR and CPT George Navarro, Adviser to the ANA.
