BAGHDAD - A Coalition patrol discovered a cache containing four 130mm rounds and a 155mm round, presumably for making improvised explosive devices Sept. 28. Soldiers from 2nd Battalion, 14th Infantry Regiment "Golden Dragons" of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division (LightInfantry) out of Fort Drum, N.Y., discovered the rounds, along with two barrels of black powder and another barrel filled with an unknown substance, near Az-Zaidon, Iraq, just 15 miles southwest of Baghdad. The unknown substances were sampled for testing, and the cache was destroyed with a controlled detonation by explosive ordnance disposal technicians.
