Ideal Day

FSB Buell 3 was the most organized, neat and clean fire base among the ones we occupied during my tour. Cyclone fence fronts the fighting positions of the infantry to stop Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPG) fired by enemy soldiers. Plants grew rapidly and made keeping the fence and our other defenses weed free a never ending job. FSBs were usually temporary so heavy fence supported with metal posts was out of the question. Armored units could carry the weight but “leg” outfits could not and Buell 3 had only foot soldiers.
