At one Afghan base, U.S. troops have extra reason to be thankful

The rocket-propelled grenade smashed into a bladder full of 63,000 gallons of diesel fuel, sending a fireball 1,000 feet skyward, destroying 10 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles and raining metal over the base. The fact that there were no casualties in the incident Nov. 15 was another reason to be thankful this Thanksgiving.
