Video of IED attack In Iraq

Video of an IED attack in Iraq from 2005, posted by a US service member, Scott Johnson, was who in the attack.

From YouTube:

3rd squad, 1st platoon, E Co 2/24 on a patrol in February 2005, near Mahmudiyah, Iraq. The real aftermath is that a Marine and a Navy Corpsman got purple hearts. We drove the truck the rest of the way back to base (minus a windshield), tried to drive it over a small canal and it got stuck (at nearly a 45 degree angle). We walked the last half mile, and we were late for chow.

And here are a few screens caps from the video:
