El-ahrairah's Iraqi Diary: Another close call

(Posted from an e-mail -- CH)

Yesterday night (March 19th), I had another close call of a rocket-assisted projectile kind. I was driving the van back to the site when the “Incoming, Incoming, Incoming” alarm went off. I started pulling over to the side when I saw this big flash of light against a building like someone lit it up with a flahslight and heard and felt a big BOOM! I stopped for a mintue and then we beat feet out of there. The projectilte was a 120 mm RAP. I don’t know how far away it was, but we didn’t get peppered with shrapnel, so it must not have been that close. But, anyway, it was kind of cool.
