This picture was taken June of 2008 In Alanbar Province, Iraq. We had just got a new shipment of MRAP's, and my crew was lucky enough to get a new one, that's why it looks so good. before that, I was in a 7ton, with the old turret, that had no windows on it.

We called those covers catchers mitts. Had about 3 of them that got tagged with RPG's it was just enough resistance to set them off but luckily no one was hurt from it other than ear's ringing because they passed right through and went off away from the trucks. We were told that we had to have them for our trucks and that was in mid07. We were in Ramadi
