AHS Tells of Coordinated Attack on Patrol Base

The Mother of All Suicide Attacks

This is quite a story. I was nearly shaking just reading about it. In the aftermath he tells of the humorous comments made and what the media missed out on with this story.
Yesterday was nuts. The day began early, with a coordinated attack from two car bombs, a suicide bomber, mortars and small arms fire. We were hit from two sides, simultaneously, as car bombs breached our perimeter, rattled our compound, and a suicide bomber attempted to make it through the breach. Mortars and small arms fire from the opposite side of our Patrol Base complimented the wave of suicide fighters.
