During my deployment to Iraq, I got caught in one of the worst sandstorms in history. While driving the Marine Corps' new 7-ton truck in a convoy, visibility was reduced to nothing and I had no idea there was a 6- to 8-foot ditch on each side of the road until it was too late. It took two wreckers and a few hours to recover the truck.
