Soldiers from Mortar Platoon, Dawg/HHC Co. 1-8 Cav check houses in a rural section of Baghdad Wednesday night. The search of houses ... mud-walled farms and new brick homes ... turned up a few illegal weapons, which the soldiers took. The Mortars trained back in the States to fire mortars, but in Iraq have learned how to search homes, set up traffic checks, establish a network of informants, and many other tasks more often linked to police work than soldiering.
