To the people who think it's a good idea to run around screaming "GET TO ZE BUNKERS" like a horrible Arnold impersonation, seriously, I'm trying to finish my movie in here and you are totally killing the ambiance of my night. The concrete over here is made of some strange amalgamation of play-doh and old recycled cardboard. Nevermind the simple fact I have NO IDEA where it's going to land. Oh, and to our glorious voice in the sky:

A few pointers,
1) It would be more helpful if the warning tones occurd prior, or at worst during the actual incoming attack. Letting me know after my stuff got knocked off the wall and people are running around, is pretty useless.
2) Turn up the volume on your damn system, I shouldn't have to go outside to hear wtf you're trying to tell me.
3) Maybe you wait to call an all clear until the earth shattering kabooms have stopped

I know, I know CSB.. But seriously if you've ever been deployed you'll know what I'm talking about, there's always one guy who thinks annoucing to the world to run for the hills is his mission during IDF. That guy, just so happens to live next to me, and I hate it.

Not sure where you're at, but it's true.

Rockets are more fun. You here them come screaming in, ususally about the time you're walking to the PX or MWR. Just turn around and go beat off.

Right on all counts. My first rocket attack got me all amped. I was all like "Fuck yeah, this is like real war or something." After that, it started getting really annoying, especially the ones that landed three or four hundred meters away. Fuckers kept running in and waking me up. I put my K pot on to make 'em happy and threw my IBA on top like a blanket. Assholes.

The one that landed about 50m from my bunk got my attention, though. SPC bluefalcon showed up to the TOC wearing IBA, Kevlar, boxer briefs, boots, and a weapon.

The alarm here on my patrol base sounds like a wet fart....literally.  Not sure what the hell is wrong with the system but you can't hear that shit even from inside our thin walled tents.

I love the smell of incoming in the morning.

I slept through my first two rocket attacks. We landed a few hours prior after a long and very annoying journey to get in country and as soon as I got my room I pulled my sleeping bag out and racked the fuck out. The base caught 4 rockets in the first one and 3 in the second one about an hour apart.

After that I found out that the worst part of IDF attacks were all the bullshit games you had to play during and afterwords...

I have a cute IDF story.  We start taking rockets, on Victory, and a SEAL comes running from his CHU with his M4.  Not his helmet or BA, but his rifle like we're getting overrun.

Yup. In my case it was SGT Cancel came running in the hooch, literally yelled "We're being attacked!" and ran back out. I executed the exact same maneuver.

Me and some of my work buddies were heading over to SG village to avoid the Toby Kieth concert when alarms went off.  We litterally stopped our conversation for all of 5 seconds then went back to what we were doing.  Fucking hajis always trying to ruin a good time.

+1. I can't hear shit in the chu til the C-RAM goes off. Its gotta be the T walls screwing up the sound. The C-RAM Its like 100 yards away form my chu and the smoke pit is right by it. That thing is a thing of beauty when it goes off at night. It also wakes you the fuck up.

I'm exposing myself more from the incoming  running from my tent/CHU to get to a bunker.  I might as well pull my pillow tight around my neck and wait for the head count.  That's how I feel about it.

The few I've seen wounded during mortar attacks with those running for the bunkers instead of hitting the deck.

For rockets, they were looking up wondering what the screaming sound was.

Having been a mortarman myself, I know how ridiculously scary the fucking things are. No warning, no nothing, just *BOOM*. Getting mortar'd is shit, especially if you can see them landing. Rockets were shit too.

Listen, guys.  I hate carrying a weapon and I never did unless I had too.  The story has changed quite a bit over there and I would carry a weapon now.  I won't have to go back but shit has changed.  I would now carry.  Crazy fucking shit in the last few months since I've left and that's as far as I'm going.

I don't know who you are, or what you've done, but you just showed your ass. If you're one of the more professional members here, you forgot the quiet part. If you're some 11b then remember I'm just some POG next time you roll out and see your medic in the back seat, that's me.

I carry everywhere, people have been "vanished" ON the fob. Lots of interesting stuff. They know were leaving and it has bolstered their reslove to "kill the Christian invaders"...

Hell if you carry at home why wouldn't you carry here. I like the fact I can be strapped as a environmental norm.

Back in December (I think, may have been November) a soldier was accosted by some LN's not far from the Palace, they jumped out of their truck and approached him with an apparent intent of kidnapping him. He had a Beretta 9mm and was able to pull it and as they were unarmed they jumped back in the truck and hauled ass. This is all according to the release made at VBC requiring all personnel to travel in buddy teams after dark or risk getting yanked by the MP's.

I don't know if anything else came of it as I went north to Speicher in early Feb (which by the way NEVER seems to take incoming ) but there was an identified danger.

VBC has been getting hit more frequently than I recall from past visits there, but it has nothing on good old FOB Falcon in late 2007, we used to get rocked 6 or 7 times a day at that joint.

And yeah, I'm a POG Government Civilian, I don't go outside the wire and get to shoot bad guys, I just make sure your little boxes that keep said bad guys from using electronics to blow your sorry asses up are available, installed and operational with the proper threat load.

+ 1 for truth.  I worry more about the crazy drivers trying to take me out when I am in the good old USA then I do about the IDF.  Haji can't hit shit, but those drivers seem to kill people everyday.

As for threats to people on the FOB, I worked in Force Pro on Victory for a while.  Travel with a buddy and carry your weapon with ammo (to many running around with mags with only a couple rounds because they are "too heavy" to carry when full) there are verifiable threats to people on VBC.  That is all I am going to say on that, but really walk with battle buddyand keep your weapon handy.
