Wounded soldiers describe 'reckless' Fallujah rebels
"'This is a rooftop to rooftop kind of fight. You see the snipers jumping from one roof to another.'
Ryan Chapman, a 22-year-old Marine, was hit above the left eye by a sniper's bullet, but escaped with a fractured skull.
'People keep on telling me that I'm lucky,' he said. 'I don't mind being lucky.'
Despite his brush with death, Chapman was keen to return to fight in Iraq.
'I want to go back. It kills me when I see the news, when I think of all my buddies back there.'
More than 1,200 rebels have been killed in the battle, the US military said on Monday."
