My Year at Abu Ghraib Prison, Iraq.
Dec 2004---Nov 2005
dba 306 Military Police
My first three months of duty was security at the hospital
. This involved daily escorts and pat downs of detainees.
These two videos are what the insurgents took of the begining of
the attack . It shows how they conducted their (IDF) In Direct Fire
Attack on the Prison. This attack took place on April 02 , 2005 the
same day the Pope died at the Vatican. The Pope's death
drowned out the medias attention of the attack at the prison.

After the attack on April 02, 2005 I
was placed in other positions ;
tower guard, entry control point
(ECP), and my last 3-4 months
consisted of CON-AIR type
The Con-Air missions were two a week. They
consisted of driving (convoy) the convicted
prisoners ( convicted by the Iraqi courts) down
the Main Service Route (MSR) (usually in a soft
skin bus) and load them into aircraft and placing
them at Iraqi strategic points where they housed
their prisoners. These missions usually consisted
of more than 50 prisoners at a time.
