Bill's latest:

Following the mortars and the attack on the other police station, I was standing on the second floor landing when loud gunfire erupted: BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! Heavier and infinitely closer than the familiar crackle of a distant AK-47, it sounded like it was coming from inside the courtyard on the first floor. "Holy *@&$, the insurgents are attacking the station and are inside the compound!" was the general thought.

The laconic professionalism of the Marines disintegrated into action.

"General Quarters!"

Read it all.
