It’s easy to get complacent. After all, I’ve been here three weeks, and nothing bad has happened… until last night.
Somewhere around 10 p.m., I heard a loud explosion nearby. It sounded like someone had fired off a single firework, but one of the ones that explodes with a really loud bang! It was a mortar attack.
I have no idea what the end result of the attack was, but to my knowledge, there hasn’t been a casualty at Camp Victory since 2007 due to indirect fire.
Anyway, I’m doing fine, but it’s a wake-up call for me to remember that even though I have my computer here, a bed to sleep in, and Oreos without milk, I’m still in a hazardous duty location.
I’ll be cleaning my gun today.
