"..protective measures(to the compound) included razor wire, incremental improvements to the front gate, and a few speed bumps on the paved road that touched the wall of our compound...
One day, when my sister platoon was manning the outpost, an Afghan man inexplicably went over to the speed bump, rolled it up, and carried it off to his tractor, seemingly with the hope of keeping it for himself.
