This is the story of the March 4 battle and one of those heroes. March 4 when an MH-47E Chinook, code-named “Razor 3,” approached Takhur Ghar mountain, known to U. forces as “Objective Ginger.” The mountain dominates the southern end of the Shah-e-Kot Valley, and the dug-in al-Qaida forces there had proven impossible to dislodge in the 48 hours since U. No place offered a more commanding view of the Anaconda battlefield than the top of Takhur Ghar. Razor 3’s crew and remaining SEALs climbed aboard the good aircraft, which flew to a U. On board Razor 1 were about 15 Rangers, as well as an Air Force enlisted tactical air controller, or ETAC, a pair of Air Force combat search- and-rescue pararescue jumpers and another Air Force special operations combat controller.
But as the pilot from the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment brought the Chinook in to land, the helicopter was met with a fusillade of enemy machine gun and rocket-propelled fire that severed vital hydraulic lines. Sitting on the Chinook as it flew south into the heart of enemy territory was Senior Airman Jason Cunningham, a 26-year-old para-rescue jumper on his first combat mission.‘He was all about saving lives’Cunningham was a bright-eyed kid from New Mexico who always had a smile on his face.

Meanwhile, leaders at Bagram ordered the quick reaction force to launch.
But so many troops performed with such extraordinary courage during that long night and day that it could easily have been named after any one of at least a dozen men. Riding in the back of the Chinook were a handful of Navy SEALs moving to a position where they could observe a series of cave complexes where al-Qaida fighters were concentrated. “We did not want to leave one of our people behind.”Forty-five minutes after Razor 3 had made its forced landing, another MH-47E — “Razor 4” — landed beside the damaged Chinook. There Razor 3’s crew got off, and the Chinook sped back to the valley. On the flight line, the twin rotor blades of two more MH-47s — “Razor 1” and “Razor 2” — slowly began to turn.
