|I remember my first convoy out of Dian, the base camp for the 1st Infantry Division.
I was standing in the back of the jeep looking out over the M-60 machine gun that was mounted on
the back. I saw a metal bar on the front of the jeep. It stuck straight up in the air about 6' and
jutted out at a 45 degree angle. I asked one of the guys from the 1st MPs what this was for. He told
me it was to prevent me from getting knocked out of the back of the jeep from any wire strung
across the roadway. Oh! And I volunteered for this?
