During Kawachan's first tour of Iraq in 2004, he had several close calls.

When an RPG blows under your HUMMER, it can flip on it's side and expose you to sniper fire.
(Not to mention the shrapnel whizzing into/through your body.)




Luckily, the battery took a lot of the hit.
Chan had shrapnel in his legs/ass, interpreter took it to his ankle.

Then they started taking sniper fire.

The gunner did his duty and fired back.
He was hit several times, but kept getting up and firing back.
He took 7 (SEVEN!!) rounds before he gave up and told Chan he was hit.
If I remember correctly, he took shots to the arm, chest, and head and suffered broken ribs and a collapsed lung.
I don't know what kind of head trauma.

The gunner survived and made it back to the states.

A true hero!

I'm sure he's the reason Kawachan made it home that time.

And it rained the whole way home

Yeah it did, you and TurboPete left when it was almost hurricane like conditions! I waited until the next morning, huuuuuge difference. I believe you guys didn't have a choice, work or something similar... :-?

Great times at Yury's and Indy in general, but I'll always regret not taking the time to talk with more people, and not talking more with the people I did manage to meet.

We are a unique group of people, there's no other place like it anywhere in the world! :up:

Thanks duc (and GoBig) for creating this place :up: :up:

WTF does Robino mean anyways?
when i was 16 i worked at my buddy's pizza place in Bridgeport, CT.
he used Robino Bros pizza sauce and when bored, i use to head butt individual cans and dent them. The nickname stuck with me...in high school a lot of people didn't even know my real name.
