In 2006 Lt. Sean Parnell and the men at Third Platoon had deployed to one of the most dangerous areas of Afghanistan, less than 10 miles from the Pakistani border.
Their mission was to seek out enemy positions and thwart the movement of insurgent forces, into and out of the save haven of Pakistan.
On June 10, they fell under a fierce assault by the Taliban and enemy insurgents — RPGs and Mortars rained down on them, and machine gun fire seemed to come at them from all directions.
If they didn’t get help soon, the outcome looked grim for Sean Parnell and the men under his leadership, known as the Outlaw Platoon.
