Well today started off like any other day. Just a bit of normal patrol stuff. Our first stop was to check out this market area where a month or so ago 2 massive car bombs went off and killed like 100 people. The market is back up and running and we basically check in with the Iraqi Army who runs check points at the entrances to prevent such problems from reoccuring.

So we were talking with the IA down at one end of the market when all of a sudden one of the IA pickup trucks comes flying by with this Iraqi soldiers hand that was almost shot off. We asked what happened and found out that it was a sniper. Then we started hearing sniper fire over and over down at the other check point.
