It’s a sobering experience to see the faces, names, and ages of the US Army men and women who have been killed in Iraq.
A phrase that repeats itself again and again and again is “makeshift bomb.” Killed by a makeshift bomb. Killed when his vehicle ran over a makeshift bomb. Died of injuries sustained when he stepped on a makeshift bomb.
I guess it goes to show that even a “makeshift” bomb can kill.
But there have got to be better vehicles, better body armor, and better detection equipment to protect the lives of these people.
