I am an Air Force JTAC and, while on a foot patrol in Afghanistan at night, we were hit with and IED that was followed by a complex attack from 270 degrees around us. We had two F18s flying overhead, but due to faulty IR strobes, they couldn’t locate our position. I immediately pointed my M4 rifle to the sky, turned my SureFire Scout Light® on, and started to wave my weapon around until the F18s found our position. After they had our location, we started to engage the enemy with guns and bombs. No “friendlies” were hurt in the firefight, but we decimated the enemy forces. Thanks to my SureFire Scout Light, about 35 soldiers, including myself, are alive to tell this story.
