I am a retired engineer. I worked my engineering career in the military research world. I lived in an air conditioned office. Never was I close to the situation depicted.

I offer my thanks to you for the story and my prayers for the soldiers.

I work as an engineer for one of the companies who produce this vehicle. I would like to confirm that this is one of ours. I believe the folks around here would like to know that they are serving you well.

Great work on the story. Get home safe.

I’ve been looking for gloves with a ‘triggerfinger’?
