THAT THE DANGER IS REAL HITS HOME. Talking to a lady in our sister office in Giessen whose husband is assigned to 1-36 Infantry.

On Sunday he was patrolling central Baghdad in his Humvee when someone threw a grenade at the vehicle. The explosion took the windshield out, but he was not injured beyond a ringing in his ears.

1-36 Infantry has the oldest part of Baghdad as their sector, and judging from the map the streets are narrow and twisted. I don't envy those guys.
