Four AK-47 Assault Rifles and a large supply of ammunition were discovered by Task Force Naha, a Helicopter-borne Quick Reaction Force, who responded to a call regarding seven males who were observed placing mortars near Camp Korean Village, near Fallujah, Iraq, on Jan. 5, 2005. The response force also detained one individual. Photo by Lance Cpl. Richard A. Hilario, U.S. Marine Corps.

i was suprized to run across this page with that pic on it. i was the one who found those weapons and ammo. we landed the helos at a "house" in the desert and i took my team to secure a small storage shed type thing and inside were sacks of grain. i started checking the sacks and a few sacks had the weapons and ammo. we left that place and discovered a few 107mm rockets pointed at the base. they were on timers and set to launch in 2 min. we yanked the wires outa those and then took off in the helos and the cobras came behind us and destroyed the rockets

Hey, excellent website. A great Iraq resource is Deaths in Iraq. It breaks all of the casualties down by age, race, branch of the military, country, etc.

Yes, the Sniper Team who called in the seven individuals setting up those rockets was my partner, Adam S. There was also a Yugo SVD sniper rifle recovered with plenty of ammo. Good mission too bad he didn't have the SASR at the time to engage that far.
