INSTAPUNDIT’S AFGHANISTAN PHOTO CORRESPONDENT, Major John Tammes, sends this report:

I went out with some of the 3/116th Infantry on a patrol today. When we got to Gojurkhel, the village elder told us that there was “some ammunition” by a field.

We got the EOD team out to the village and got everyone well out of the way for what the old cartoon character, Marvin the Martian, would have described as an “Earth-shattering Kaboom.” The village was thankful we got rid of a very dangerous item, and we were glad to be rid of some IED fodder.
