192: Urban PatrollingMay 23, 2017 by Cigars and Sea Stories | Be the first to comment »
Urban patrolling is the topic on this episode of Cigars and Sea Stories. Urban patrolling, not ALL MOUT or CQB? more like dealing with dense a population of humans that do not have a proper toilet or waste facility. Bennett’s urban patrolling experience is spread across a couple of continents. Every 3rd world nation has that vibrant pungent twang to the polluted air that hangs in all the grime covered crevices. Mike served in the cesspool that was Ramadi, Iraq.
Many of the alleys and streets were littered with trash and refuse. Stray dogs roamed around the city scavenging like rats. The filth had a stinging rotten odor. Being in vehicles meant rolling around in a steel coffin with a bullseye strapped to you. At least the height of the vehicle kept the sh!t water at bay. Driving through puddles of god-knows-what while dodging trash piles hiding IEDs that could obliterate a HMMWV. Ahhhh the joys of urban patrolling.
