Don't worry, he told me. All the protective technology - the MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicle he was in, the mine roller attached to the front - had worked exactly as it was supposed to, and the worst thing anyone had experienced was a little ringing in the ears.

I don't know why, but that part is what finally got me..... glad you're okay, bro. Glad you're okay. You got guts I don't, that's all I know.

Yeah, that was an interesting day. Moment of complete chaos, then we all laughed because we were ok, then we sat there for 4 hours waiting for EOD to come search for secondaries, do post-blast analysis, and help get the mangled mine roller off of our MRAP.

You made it back safe!
Drew valet parked your green light - red carpet thread right in between the Otis the Drunk from Mayberry, RFD Mugshot from Mo Vegas, and the Dude with the huge worm growing our of his eyeball.
So you got a Ripley's ~ Believe It Or Not kinda of parade going on here on the interwebs.
Something to watch grow while you are taking a dump on your home throne for a chance to do something different.
Welcome home.
