Or being shot at, three times I've been shot at while on approach or takeoff...and don't get started about Balad aka mortaritaville.
Balad gets a rep for being cushy, but my second deployment, from Feb 05-Feb 06 - was the most action out of all four of my tours in Iraq by a long shot. I think out of the year I spent there, I spent something like 11 days in my own bed. I remember I didn't have a mission outside the wire the day before I went on R&R and the last 3 days of our tour. It was something ridiculous like 313 missions completed in 320 days in Balad. Not the unit. That was me.
There was no telling what would happen on route dover between balad and baquba. There was one outpost outside a pretty big town to the north (can't remember the name in 2005 - it was called pacesetter in 2003/2004) where we couldn't go without bradley and apache support. We still got in firefights every time we went through that town. There were a few bridges over the rivers going into town. There were so many IED holes, it was like playing frogger going over the bridges.
I wasn't at Balad enough to get the full brunt of the constant mortar attacks. I remember there was a unit in the transient area getting ready to leave when a mortar hit one of their (full) tents. Somehow, by miracle I guess, only one person got injured. Luckily for that one person, my room mate and I were both EMT qualified, going to get our aid bags refilled nearby when it happened.
