War in Iraq (Events)

"I guess I'm good enough to drive an armored troop transport truck to Tikrit, but not to polish the floors at Neptune High."

In 2003, a US-led coalition invaded Iraq. Tikrit, a town northwest of Baghdad and the apex of a triangular area largely populated by Sunnis, was seen as the likely shelter of former Iraqi President Sadam Hussein and targeted for particular military action. Coalition forces in Tikrit faced regular insurgency attacks. Kind of tough on Lucky and tough to be snarky about it.
