Watch Brian Stann be a hero

We make fun of Brian Stann for being marketed as a Real American Hero so much, but goddamnit he fits the bill. The military didn’t give him a medal for most granite-ish jaw (even though they should), but he did get a Silver Star for pulling his battalion through a crazy ambush that almost killed a bunch of them. We’ve talked about it on the site before, but now UFC Ultimate Insider (or is it Ultimate UFC Insider? ULTIMATE!) has a bunch of footage and audio from the mission. This one goes out to jackal iamphoenix who’s deploying to Afghanistan. No coming home without your own collection of Silver Stars. Preferably for something safe like paperwork filing or excellence in latrine duty.

    penix will get a medal of honor for not killing 16 afghan civilians

  • Letibleu

    they reviewed his psychological evaluation and all the sudden there are delays in his departure

  • fightlinker

    lol they musta saw some of the stuff he posted in the forums here ;-)

  • G Funk

    They went back and gave that sacrifice to recover an immobile tank? Why didn’t the superiors just drop a bomb on the tank? Another odd story of war. Seems like another BS setup mission.

    Besides Phoenix and I, is anyone else on the site currently serving?

    Stay safe Phoenix.

  • CAP

    Save the stuff penix posted on here for when he wants OUT of the army. They will deem him AWOL on the spot!

    OMG I’m internet famous even harder now! thanks hyan. Stann is a hero, I’m just a gyro.
    I doubt my command would be able to do anything about what I post on here. I have not said anything about not following the presidents orders. I also have not killed 16 civilians. The worst I would have done is not processed their paperwork.

    I second that wish of safeness….we need penix for all the lulz….and kittay pics.

    yeah i guess that pilot and co pilot are ok but in a shit load of trouble


    Hard to believe those guys survived. Pause it at the 24 – 25 second mark and look how close it came to pancaking that guy on the ground. Fucking crazy.

  • Letibleu

    amazing that 2 helicopters crashed the same way in the same place just seconds apart

  • noiseless

    i will be sad when you die, penix. and then i shall take your place.

    kiiiinda don’t see it either. plz don’t go penux :|


    phoenix needs to update his SGLI and make the fightlinker community his beneficiary that way we can throw a coke and hooker fueled Vegas blowout in honor of his untimely demise.

    Didn’t some British soldier do that a few years back?
