Soldier survives attack; captures, medically treats sniper (Video)


http://www.armytimes.com/content/editorial/editart/tschiderer071505.JPGPfc. Stephen Tschiderer is a native of Mendon, N.Y. —

During a routine patrol in Baghdad June 2, Army Pfc. Stephen Tschiderer, a medic, was shot in the chest by an enemy sniper, hiding in a van just 75 yards away. The incident was filmed by the insurgents. Tschiderer, with E Troop, 101st “Saber” Cavalry Division, attached to 3rd Battalion, 156th Infantry Regiment, 256th Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, was knocked to the ground from the impact, but he popped right back up, took cover and located the enemy’s position. After tracking down the now-wounded sniper with a team from B Company, 4th Battalion, 1st Iraqi Army Brigade, Tschiderer secured the terrorist with a pair of handcuffs and gave medical aid to the terrorist who’d tried to kill him just minutes before.

See the video of the attack (mms://wm.gannett.speedera.net/wm.gannett/atpco/071505sniper.wmv).

I'm damn glad that young man is alright. That could have been a bad day for his family, very easily.

I hope he at least stuck his thumb in that prick's bullet hole and twisted some bones a little before anyone was watching.

Great story.

What a great example of a soldier representing this country. I am glad he is safe.

I have a friend going to Iraq soon. I couldn't imagine if anything happened to him.

This would be a pretty good video, but it sounds like the guy narriating it has a peanut butter sandwich stuck to the roof of his mouth :shrug:

That body armor worked pretty damn good if you ask me!

Does anyone know what the terrorist was saying? It sounds kind of like "allah akba" over and over again. I wonder what that means?

Allah Akbar is arabic for God is the Greatest.

This phrase is recited by Muslims in numerous different situations. For example, when they are happy or wish to express approval, when an animal is slaughtered in a halāl fashion, when they want to praise a speaker, and during battles.

We are in way over our heads against these mean motherf*ckers. Allah, save my sorry ass please."

Personally, I think they should have secured the sniper with an incendiary grenade before treating his wounds.

Personally, I think they should have secured the sniper with an incendiary grenade before treating his wounds. I think this is even more true!! ROFL

They should have sent the camera jockey to a personal meeting with Allah. Just don't hurt the camera.
