COMBAT STORIES FROM AFGHAN./IRAQ/OTHER

Chuck Ware | 2nd Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment

4:24   |   What did not work right in Iraq? Battalion commander Chuck Ware has a list. The sand was insidious, getting into every crevice of every piece of gear. There were vast quantities of supplies, but no one knew where anything was in a sea of unmarked CONEX containers, including food and vital parts. Anti-aircraft gunners were operating as road guards, everyone was in chemical suits, and the .45 ammo didn't work.
