Forces Nab Surface-to-Air Missiles in Mosul

Check out Michael Yon's dispatch of this News Story. A really good job by our Stryker Soldiers.

Stemming the flow of munitions has been an ongoing challenge, one that’s been met with varying degrees of success. It begins with intelligence about how material moves in and out of a city. Mosul has 34 “major” land routes, consisting of 11 roads and 23 “rat lines.” The so-called rat lines are usually no more than hard-packed dirt trails, but they are navigable avenues into Mosul.
