On this day June 24, 2004

On this day insurgents ramped up the attacks on federal buildings and Iraqi police in Mosul 4 car bombs went off alone . Killed over 60 people.

I just wrote about this the other day. After 68 months deployed in my military career, I have a hard time remembering where and when some things happened. This I didn’t remember the date but I remember the day. I was on the Fob and walking back to the motor pool. I had just left the flight line when I heard the explosions. I remember looking back and could see the smoke rising from downtown Mosul. I remember hearing two bombs go off within about 15 minutes apart.

There was a lot of injuries this day. Civilians that was just walking around the area. It truly was a bad day in Mosul.
