Amazing Bravo Company Story

Somebody else has beaten me to the punch writing about one of the most amazing stories I heard while in Fallujah. The story involves three Bravo Company soldiers who rolled their Bradley Fighting Vehicle into a canal in total darkness, and lived to tell about it.

Read the story here: http://blog.soldiersmind.com/2007/03/01/training-saves-lives-of-soldiers/

Here are some additional photos to go with the story:


The muddy Bradley back in the motor pool after being recovered. This vehicle was severely damaged by being submerged in the canal, and had to be sent back to depot maintenance.


The rollover crew returning from a combat patrol several days after the rollover in their new Bradley.

Chris Muir is the cartoonist that I met in Kuwait. He spent two weeks in Iraq at the same time I was there in February 2007, and so thought it would relevant to showcase his work on my site. Here is a link to Chris' humorous travelogue of this Iraq trip: http://billroggio.com/archives/2007/03/arrival_alignright_v.php
