A CIA officer wore this communication headset as he led his indigenous team in pursuit of a high-ranking enemy in Afghanistan in 2009. Eventually cornered in a valley, the enemy took rifle shots at his pursuers. Two bullets grazed the headset, one on each side, just inches from the officer’s face. The officer then called in an air strike that put the enemy out of commission.
