Latafiya, Iraq, May 19, 2007 [Alpha Co. 2-15, Task Force 2-15, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division] – A badly wounded soldier is loaded onto a medevac chopper. A combat patrol today ended in tragedy when one U.S. soldier was killed and four wounded (three Americans and one Iraqi) by a land mine or an IED buried along a dirt road on which the troops were walking. They were searching for three missing American soldiers captured several days earlier.
