On april 10th, 2003, the 1st battalion, 5th marine regiment, ran headlong into what Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North called, faced with the task of seizing the presidential palace in downtown Baghdad, "the worst day of fighting for U. S. But in the hearts and minds of the Marines who were there, there was no question.

The men of the 1st battalion came to discover what King David had discovered long ago--that God's presence could be richly experienced even in the presence of enemies.

No Place to Hide: A Brain Surgeon's Long Journey Home from the Iraq War
Lee warren’s life as a neurosurgeon in a trauma center began to unravel long before he shipped off to serve the Air Force in Iraq in 2004. In his 120 days in a tent hospital, he was trained in a different specialty—surviving over a hundred mortar attacks and trying desperately to repair the damages of a war that raged around every detail of every day.
When he traded a comfortable if demanding practice in San Antonio, for a ride on a C-130 into the combat zone, Texas, he was already reeling from months of personal struggle. At the 332nd air force theater hospital at Joint Base Balad, Iraq, Warren realized his experience with trauma was just beginning.
No place was safe, and the constant barrage wore down every possible defense, physical or psychological. One day, and running shoes, gym shorts, clad only in a t-shirt, Warren was caught in the open while round after round of mortars shook the earth and shattered the air with their explosions, stripping him of everything he had been trying so desperately to hold on to.
