Dale Rider deployed to Iraq as a bridge crew member of an Engineer unit initially assigned to advise and assist the Iraqi’s, after the war had theoretically ended. So, naturally, in the middle of the Iraq mission, his small detachment would head into Syria for a different mission. Dale shares his experiences with that sudden change of mission, and the struggle to deal with some of its side effects when he returned home. It’s an interesting story that explores the volatile environment in Iraq and the surrounding region after the major troop drawdown, and how it’s still affecting young servicemembers today. Hear Dale Rider’s complete story on this latest episode of HAZARD GROUND!
