Senior Airman Julian Rangel stands by one of the mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles that two Air Force quick reaction forces used while defending a forward operating base from a Taliban attack July 17 near Kabul Airport and Afghan air force base, Afghanistan. Rangel, who was asleep at the time the attack began, responded to the fight in shorts, t-shirt and tennis shoes under his body armor. He served as a gunner on the vehicle and laid down about 400 rounds of suppressive fire with an M240B medium machine gun during the more than four-hour firefight.

Armed with multiple rocket propelled grenades, automatic weapons, suicide vests, and a vehicle rigged to explode, the attackers crept up to the rooftop and prepared to unleash hell.
