Not sure why he though it was a good idea to advance on an enemy (who looked to have pretty good cover) over open terrain but one hopes that his Sargent beat the living crap out of him once they were done with that.

I'm not sure the tactical situation (he kept talking about drawing fire away from his unit) but the accompanying article didn't say anything about a desperate fight against overwhelming odds. I think maybe the chain of command had an earnest after action debriefing with him.

I imagine so. Some of my former Soldiers and I dissected this video. Essentially this kid comes across as completely stupid and very, very lucky.
