Mosul Attack-first person account

"By the time I got back to our compound it was all over the news. It seemed like the thing had just happened when in reality I had been neck deep in it for several hours. And there it was on TV. Frankly, it's kind of a blur.".... Chaplain Lewis on the Mosul bombing.

Note from Sallyann: An explosion tore into a crowded mess tent at lunchtime today near Mosul, killing as many as 15 U.S. soldiers and several other people, the U.S. military said. More than 60 people were wounded. Chaplain Lewis attended the wounded and dying soldiers and military personnel. His first person account of this terrible event is difficult to read. Chaplain Lewis, through his words, puts you at the scene in a most provocative yet respectful way. To read his account is to suffer with him. To not read his account is to miss an opportunity of fully knowing the meaning of "the ultimate sacrifice."
