For the first time in decades, in 2004-2005, the first group of National Guardsmen deployed to a combat zone. CPT Phillip Esposito and 1LT Louis Allen were among those guardsmen. They were stationed at Forward Operating Base (FOB) Danger. The FOB’s name would be an omen for what was to come, when on June 7, 2005, Esposito and Allen were killed by a bomb that was placed by their window. Who placed the explosive in the window? Was it an enemy attack or the work of an unconventional enemy?
Dig in with Margot as she tells you this terrifying tale of massive errors that occurred over and over again, as troops heard one of their own make open threats to their commander, yet no one felt the need to report it. Who would pay for these two deaths?
