Unstoppable Sappers

Spartan Sentinal Volume 4, Number 2 - September 1, 2007
UNSTOPPABLE, or almost.

When it comes to deadly roadside bombs, the Sappers of the 425th Brigade Special Troops Battalion are experts at finding and destroying them. Even when nothing else is on the road, the engineers are out clearing the roadways and making them safe for everyone. With all of their expertise and machinery they are nearly unstoppable. However, they recently met their match, a ten year old boy, his two brothers and their flock of sheep. Just when the engineers thought it was safe, along came another young boy and his cattle. In the large agricultural region of the Euprhates River Valley south of Baghdad, sights like this are a common occurrence.
