and in his chalk the first ever combat mission for 18 year old private todd blackburn fresh in from high school and boot camp but having not yet been to ranger school for whatever reason likely excitement and adrenaline blackburn completely misses the rope as he exits the aircraft and falls 60 feet to the ground medics run to attend to him the raid is taking place close to the bakara market an id'd controlled area of the city with a high concentration of sna militia
05:57
with the pre-warning that the raid was coming hundreds of militia are organized armed and waiting fire begins to erupt on the rangers from all directions sna runners move out across the city to mobilize militia further afield who begin to arm themselves mount upon trucks and head in the direction of the helicopters circling above the city however as the sna are only using runners on foot 30 minutes should be plenty of time for the raiding force to ex-fill from the area before the city swarms in
06:28
medics stabilized blackburn but with the fire raining down on them a helicopter evacuation is out of the question they'll have to wait for the convoy rocket-propelled grenades rpgs are now being fired at the defending ranges a crowd of unarmed locals are also forming around the raid site the situation is manageable but the strength of the resistance is much higher than expected while the delta operators move through the target building the humvee convoy arrives on the street outside and waits

for them to complete their work ebezman orders five men in his talk to move blackburn over to the waiting vehicles chalk 2's m60 machine gunner sean nelson can see a larger crowd numbering in the thousands forming further down the street he's monitoring he spots an armed group following a man confidently riding a cow out into the street in front of him wielding an ak he opens fire on the man and the rest of the group scatter just at that moment a blackhawk sweeps

08:02
and unarmed locals charge at chalk 2. this time without time to think about it the chalk returns fire at that moment a little bird maraudes down the street above their heads and inflicts a devastating minigun run on the crowd the display of awesome firepower disperses any survivors all four chalks are now being forced into the tough decision to open fire on militia who are using unarmed people as human shields from the perspective of the locals who are just arriving at the scene
08:33
they see the americans indiscriminately firing on civilians and the fury of the citizens grows further the hornet's nest has been stirred lieutenant colonel mcknight sends three humvees to carry critically injured blackburn back to base immediately the journey should only take five minutes but they've driven into the storm they turn onto national street to find militia on both sides firing into them with stray rounds into each other as they drive through paulson manning the 50-caliber machine
09:03
gun on the lead humvee fires right and pillar in the second fires left in the furious torrent of fire pillar is killed instantly by a round to the forehead in that moment fighting for their lives and with rpgs now flying down the street at them a call comes over the radio from sergeant gallagher a platoon sergeant with the main force at the target building how are you guys doing taking heavy fire striker shouts i don't want to talk about it unsatisfied gallagher calls again have you got any
09:34

10:05
the trucks it's now nearly 40 minutes after the first boost landed the process of clearing the building and processing the prisoners is taking longer than expected there is also confusion with the delta team waiting for the comms from the convoy to leave the building and the convoy waiting for the delta team to let them know that they've apprehended the prisoners every minute the mob grows stronger but the rangers and circling helicopters are so far keeping them at bay chalk 4 rangers galentine and berenson
