A brave Iraqi civilian felt he could trust LTC Zeisman and the troopers of the famous 2/505th and gave them information about a cleverly concealed munitions cache in eastern Baghdad on Thursday. This tip led to a raid by the 2nd Battalion of the 8th Brigade of the 2nd National Police Division in cooperation with our paratroopers and the recovery of a sizeable amount of ammunition going from 60mm mortar shells to 120 mm and Katyusha rockets and RPGs.
It is the trust and respect that the American soldiers have earned with the civilian population that is the real source of change in Iraq. Your sons, brothers, husbands and fathers in the 2/505th are doing the right things the right way and bringing peace and stability to the citizens of Baghdad.
Company B of the 2/505th, commanded by Major Greg Sakimura, was the line company involved in the operation.
Thank the Lord for his continued blessings of safety for our ‘troopers and for the success of this operation.
