Rare helmet-cam video shot in Afghanistan by a Medevac helicopter crew during the Battle of Ganjal Gar shows Capt. Will Swenson braving enemy fire to help his friend, mortally wounded First Sgt. Kenneth Westbrook, onto the aircraft.

He leans in and kisses the wounded soldier on the head in an act of compassion and loyalty to his brother-in-arms.

As the door closes and the helicopter takes off, Swenson turns and runs back to the battle!

After rescuing Westbrook, Swenson would venture three more times into the kill zone of a Taliban ambush to save more than a dozen wounded comrades and recover the bodies of four slain American servicemen.

 

Army Capt. Will Swenson received the Medal of Honor for his bravery while defending his country. The small act of kindness caught on video shows his real nature, even in the middle of combat.

And here is more footage from different helmet cams!

This video depicts the battlefield actions of Cpt. William Swenson on Sept. 8, 2009 near the village of Ganjgal in Kunar Province, Afghanistan, as he directs MedEvac landing for the evacuation of his critically injured teammate, Sgt. 1st Class Kenneth Westbrook. The video was captured by two different MedEvac crew members and shows each crew member’s perspective of events spanning the same time period.
