Regarding the bombing outside the police academy.
I checked with our rear detachment guys...the bombing was outside the compound where CPT Patti and the Gators live and work. However, none of our guys were hurt (though nerves might be a bit on edge at the moment).
Story I get says that it was close enough, rattling enough for the troops to wonder if all hell had broken loose inside the compound. But in the end, all were happy to find it was outside and did little damage.
Thanks to those of you who conveyed your worries to me. It is really, really nice to know that I don't worry about these things alone.
