"ZZZip. P-e-e-e-w-w-w-w
“Oh SHIT!”
“Hey! How does it go in that movie? ‘If it’s a whiz it’s close, if it’s a crack, it’s hitting you’ or something like that?” I hollered at the humvees next to me. That wasn’t the exact quote. But I think it was from Black Hawk Down, I’m not sure. I was standing ball-defilade in my hatch. That means, from my crotch up, I was exposed. Dawn was rising in the east and we were all situated on the overpass bridge now. The tanks were in the center of the bridge, hull facing south, gun tubes facing west. This gave anybody on the ground behind the tanks, the maximum friendly cover from the sniper fire. Either way, whoever was shooting at us, wasn’t far off."
