"Day in day out they crawl into their armored vehicles each wearing 60+
lbs. of body armor and drive very slowly out on some of the
most dangerous roads in the world on missions often lasting longer than 12 hours.
They sometimes walk over 8 km a day in the extreme Afghanistan heat clearing areas
inaccessible to their vehicles. This is all done in an effort to rid the roads of the
enemy's most casualty producing weapon, the IED. This is today's mission of the U.S Army Combat Engineer
and these are today's 630th Engineer Company Soldiers."
