UPDATED 12 APR 2017

December of 2005 - somewhere outside of the wire, down-range.  Next to me are just a few of the munitions that were found in CONEX boxes in this particular village.  They were disguised as houses, covered with mud, so that coalition aerial reconnaissance wouldn't detect these caches'. Mostly Eastern Block era in nature, these were taken to an improvised pit and destroyed by the USAF EOD team.  I have never heard, nor seen, such an explosion in my life.
