Tonights History Channel episode of 'SHOOTOUT', centered on the battle of An Nasiryia, March 23rd 2003, during the 'march to Baghdad'.
27+ KIA in one day. Most from friendly fire, atributted to 'the fog of war'.

Rest in peace my brothers.

And it rekindled a previous question about Air Force planes flying close air support for Marine units.
With any decent training, the A10 pilots would be able to tell the difference in a Marine AAV Amtrac, and some kind of Iraqi armour.

Well said! No arguments here!

Marine air support: Tire tracks on the helmet!
