COMBAT STORIES FROM AFGHAN./IRAQ/OTHER

Britney Alexander | 4th Aviation Unit, 4th Infantry Division

7:47   |   Alexander remembers being put on Quick Reaction Force duty, which essentially meant that she aided in one of the first lines of defense of the Shindand Air Base. When she first got there it was in the middle of the Islamic month of Ramadan, a very peaceful time in which there was little to no fighting from the enemy. Once that time ended, however, she was surprised to see that violent mortar attacks started up again.
