Joshua Rodriguez | 4th Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Brigade combat Team, 1st Infantry Division - Army

It wasn't popcorn that woke him, though, it was bullets coming through the thin walls. As he scrambled for his equipment, he made an embarrassing discovery that would soon have him running like a movie star with bullets hitting around his feet.
