Riding with the 'Blood Angels'

A Humvee pulls up next to a Humvee disabled by a simulated improvised explosive device (left) in preparation to attach a tow strap and drag the immobilized vehicle away from the site of attack. To expedite this process, each vehicle was fitted with a tow strap prior to the start of the mission, which was tucked through sling loops on the hood so it would be easily accessible in time of need.
