Operation Iraqi Freedom
The above photo, an explosive thermal decomposition of an unstable peroxide forming
was initiated by an explosive donor charge.
The U.S. Army's, 8th Psychological Operation Battalion (PSYOP), used this photo
four different leaflets dropped over Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom
in the spring of 2003.
One of the Iraqi Freedom leaflets is shown below with a translation of the Arabic text.
Front - Translation - "Do not use weapons of mass destruction."
Back - Translation - "Any unit that chooses to use weapons of mass
will face swift and severe retribution by Coalition Forces. Unit commanders will
be held accountable if weapons of
mass destruction are used."
It has been an honor and a privilege to have made a small contribution
and assist the
American Soldier in the war against terrorism during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
I have taken many interesting photos
over my lifetime, however, this one
has become very special.
