The Sandbox

GWOT hot wash, straight from the wire

Welcome to The Sandbox, a forum for service members who have served or are currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, returned vets, spouses and caregivers. The Sandbox's focus is not on policy and partisanship (go to our Blowback page for that), but on the unclassified details of deployment -- the everyday, the extraordinary, the wonderful, the messed-up, the absurd. All correspondence is read, and as much as possible is posted, lightly edited. If you know someone who is deployed who might have something to say, please tell them about us.

"High angle hell" is a tagline for the Infantry Mortarman, which I spent almost my entire 22 years in the Army as. So needless to say, this video strikes close to home. I love watching young “mortar maggots” in action. This offers just a glimpse of the type of jobs our brave warfighters are doing downrange.
