On June 6, 2011, in Helmand province, Afghanistan, two teams of reconnaissance Marines came under heavy enemy fire. One squad, designated as team one, was pinned down in a canal with enemy fighters just 100 meters away. The assault was so intense that the Marines were unable to return fire or reach an injured Afghan soldier to provide first aid.
