Rocket Man

As I mentioned earlier, about three weeks ago a colleague's trailer here in the IZ was hit by indirect fire. Check out the pictures below.

The round (either a small artillery shell or mortar round) went through another trailer, through two sandbags, through Peter's trailer, and embedded four feet in the ground below. Luckily, it failed to detonate. Peter was not in the trailer when it was struck, although since it came through below his bed he likely would not have been seriously hurt.

Still, it makes the bullet that struck my trailer back in March seem almost inconsequential by comparison.
