Yeah, call sign berserker 1/2. That day was a " horrifying reality check". as far as people talikg about it, whatever helps them cope, I'm still trying to find a way to make some kind of sense out of it. But I hope we all can find peace about this some day. I hope u all are doing alright

As we approach that date, I would like to take this time to say "Thank You Jesus" for protecting all of us who survived the IED in the KBR Rhino Jul. 2008, I am so grateful. To all of my co-workers who also survived, Be Grateful !!!

Thank You Jesus

I guess all I can say is if people want push blame around or make accusations point the finger at me. I accepted the guilt of this day long ago and deal with that everyday, But I am tired of hearing second hand accounts from disgruntled people and misconceptions. That day was a horrifying reality check for all involved. With the 4 year anniversary coming up I hope all survivors are doing well and May we never forget, Pamela Brown-Mayo, Justin English, Canan Sari and Krunoslav Sani. God bless all.
After see the damage and helping with the Medavac, I realized how blessed I was. One of the medics went into shock, a young female PFC, I tried to talk to her and calm her down, but I understood, I will never forget that day.

I pray for all involved.

I drove the Rhino out of TQ to Al Asad when TQ closed. That incident in Mosul always stayed in my mind while I was driving. I remember when the bus arrived at TQ on a lowboy. I have pictures and I took pictures of the undercarriage to see what It look like- I don't remember seeing anything that made me feel more safer..but I decided I couldn't worry about it..besides this was B6 to B1 6 hours--not the Mosul area-- other then driving through Hit..I never felt unsafe. I think my passngers were a little unnerved at times when the convoy stopped and we had to turn out the lights. Glad it was not a longer ride--my bladder would not have been happy :(

Praise God for another year, I am so glad to be alive. KBR Rhino, did not protect all on board that day, and that means it failed.

I will never stop telling this story. All of those who lose their life will never be forgotten.

KBR Rhino......failed that day......
