Iraq Security Detail Book Excerpt

I thought some of you would dig this excerpt from a book about a Blackwater security detail protecting Bremer in Iraq in 2003

Interesting excerpt to read...security contractors all had brevity codes, and rehearsed immediate action drills for both far and near IED ambushes, coordinated attack ambushes, and arranged flight support. Takes alot of training to get to that level. Kudos to the teams involved. Blackwater guys had it rough, one of my buddies was on those teams after he got out.
