SGT Briggs finds himself in a critical shoot/don't shoot, with the lives of his company potentially in the balance. While performing guard duty in one of the perimeter towers, SGT Briggs has been observing a local national waving a white flag and motioning. SGT Briggs attempted to get the man to move to a different location and figure out his intent. Instead, the man jumps over the perimeter wall into the American outpost. Penetrating the perimeter is considered a hostile act, and the Rules of Engagement clearly allow SGT Briggs to take the shot. SGT Briggs has a split second to decide whether this man lives or dies.
