Docs Duty: Do you know Rambo?

Two Afghan citizens prevented a terrorist attack yesterday morning when a vehicle loaded with explosives attempted to crash through the front gate of Camp Phoenix."Without any regard for their personal safety, a local Afghan security officer and an interpreter immediately recognized that this was a terrorist attack," said 1st Lt. Cathrin Fraker.

"Together, the two prevented the driver from detonating his explosives after they failed to explode during the crash. With the assistance of the US Security Forces, they dragged the terrorist from the vehicle where they were detained.""If it wasn't for the quick actions of the local nationals working for the US Forces, several lives would have been lost," stated Col. David B Enyeart, the deputy Task Force commander.

Check out the rest of the story and a neat photo of Camp Phoenix during Christmas at Flag Gazer's.

I'll be back with some more posts right after I brush the chick-o-sticks and peanut butter logs out of my teeth. :) Sugar, sugar, sugar.

In fact I know Rambo very well, we all owe him our lives and he is a wonderful man and soldier. His family was kiled by the Taliban some years before the US came and now he is on our side for almost nothing, but he is at his "post" every day rain, snow, or shine. To assist us in our mission. If more Afghans were like him, this country would've been turned over to them to run by themselves long ago
