Iraqis clear the street as Fisher's Humvee approaches. His squad leader, Sgt. Buthmann, instructed Fisher to be aggressive in his driving, to avoid any potential danger. "You can't really stop for people, so you just keep going," Fisher says. Buthmann offered other advise- avoid driving too close to the carcasses of dead dogs that littered the roads and sometimes hid IEDs. He cautioned Fisher against letting his attention stray. "Look at the road," Buthmann said. "That's where the bombs are."
