There came a day when the guys of the 2nd Platoon, Charlie 1-26 just couldn't do it anymore.
It was the day after the guys in Alpha Company got slaughtered in a Bradley when a 500-lb IED blew up under it...
Just like had happened to four guys in Charlie Company, about three months before.
So, after they heard about Alpha Company, and when they realized it could--it SHOULD--have been them, instead, when the next orders came to take a patrol, they refused. "Not us. We're not going."
It's an excruciating story.
