The inside story of the deadliest attack on a U.S. military base during the Iraq War | Task & Purpose

In 2004, a suicide bomber who packed his explosives with ball bearing infiltrated the Forward Operating Base Marez in Mosul that killed 23 people and injured may others. It was the single deadliest attack on a U.S. military installation during the war in Iraq, according to icasualties.org. Survivors and families of fallen heroes are still healing from the effects of the attack as pieces of evidence have shown that the incident could have been prevented. Jeremy Redmon shares the story during his time in Iraq where he witnessed the bombing.
