US Soldier Hit with Backblast from Rocket 1:27

Funker 530 has been doing a great job documenting what it's like for soldiers in Afghanistan. Here, a soldier is walking along the firing line while multiple men are firing rockets. This soldier happens to get a little too close to the backblast from the rocket. It sends him flying to the ground. Don't worry, you can hear him and other soldiers laughing.

It's hard not to have fun on four wheels when you're rolling in a Mustang. The staple in Ford's stable garners decades of devout fans and followers.

The road there is a fun mix of twisties, switchbacks and desert straightaways. I often visit this lake , it's one of my favorite Phoenix area destinations and I've never had this much fun getting there.   View Now
