just another day

last nite, we had some gifts sent in over the camp walls. 11 hit around various spots. as i was running for cover one hit real close. i saw the flash from the blast and hauled till I hit a bunker!!!One of the food trucks got hit by the one that landed close to me ohh,, about 100 yards away from where i was at. here are a few pics. We held a safety class in the trailer today-to give an example as to the destructive power of a mortar.
