    U.S. Army Pfc. Phil Mexcur, a fire support specialist, with Charlie Company, 3rd Battalion of the 172nd Infantry (Mountain) Regiment from Concord, N.H., holds his vector binoculars that were hit by sniper rounds before being stopped by his side plate. Immediately after realizing he wasn’t injured, he performed a casualty assessment of his platoon sergeant, gave the distance and direction of the sniper fire and directed close-air support, all within two minutes of being shot.
