From early May 2003-January 2004 we occupied an abandoned Iraqi military base near the town of Sinjar. Soon after our arrival the outer cordon of the base was built using HESCO barriers which we used as guard positions and to control access to the base. Members of my Platoon acquired some HESCO barriers not used in the construction of the outerperimeter to build a shower and some trash cans for our use.
