This was very recently uploaded on Youtube. It is a longer version of the drone footage that captured the battle, and Tech. Sergeant John Chapman's heroic actions and final moments.

All, please remember this thread is for the purposes of honoring Sgt. Chapman. Debate about anything else can be put in the SOCM Slabinski thread linked below.

It’s unreal. Knocked it out in about 2 sittings. Get it and read it, if you haven’t.
Read it in 2 days this last deployment. Amazing book, started kinda slow, but that passage outlining what he did in the final minutes gave me a shiver and a tear in my eye. I also felt a connection talking about his childhood as I spent part of my childhood in Springfield MA and would always fly out of Windsor Locks over the border.
Cool side note- my old call sign is mentioned in the book. That gave me a laugh.
