U.S. Soldiers stop potential attack on polling site
BAGHDAD, Iraq – Task Force Baghdad Soldiers detained 11 suspected terrorists at a checkpoint in Yusufiyah in the early afternoon of Oct. 15, heading off a potential attack on voters.
After stopping a suspicious blue van at the checkpoint, Soldiers from 108th Calvary, 48th Brigade Combat Team searched the vehicle and discovered three 125-millimeter projectiles.
“Coalition Forces are here to support the Iraqi Army and their efforts to protect their citizens while they vote,” said 2nd Lt. Chris Dryden, an operations officer with the unit. “Our Soldiers did exactly what we are here to do—help give Iraqis a chance at freedom.”
