Mortar

Tag search ‘afghanistan’.  An amazing pic – I have never seen a mortar round captured at such a critical moment.  Larger here.

Cap:

From left, U.S. Army Pfc. Jerry Cleveland and Spc. Brett Mitchell, both from Alpha Company, 1st Battalion, 4th Infantry International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), fire a 120mm mortar during a combat operation in the Da\’udzay Valley in the Zabol province of Afghanistan Oct. 23, 2007. The operation is a joint Afghan National Army and ISAF mission to clear anti-government elements from the Dawzi area in Zabol province, Afghanistan.

    Erm, no I’m not a battlefield photographer. The person who took the pic is though. 🙂
