Help and Luck. You never know what will work to your benefit or detriment when shit goes down. Lucky for us, I caught the glimpse of USAR armored coming up from the rear of our column. I broke the seal on the door and exited the vehicle, took a mental snapshot of the situation from the exterior and went to hail down the two MRAPs (mine resistant ambush protected vehicles) that were in sight. Thank God they stopped for us which isn’t always the case.
