Because you spend a great deal of time executing operations “outside the wire,” you are particularly familiar with your driver, SPC Smith and your gunner, PFC Jones; over the course of the deployment, you have grown to rely on them to give you the “pulse” of the platoon. On an unfortunate day in April, as you convoy from your Forward Operating Base to a location within the nearby city, a roadside, improvised explosive device tears through your convoy, overturning your vehicle and sending shrapnel in all directions.
As you realize what has occurred and move to react, you find that while you are mobile, your driver is seriously injured and your gunner appears to have died of wounds caused by either the accident or the shrapnel. In the hours and days that follow, your Company Commander encourages you to write a letter to the parents of the Soldier you lost in combat, PFC Jones. On a separate page, please type a letter to the parents of PFC Jones.
