ALL YOUR BRIDGE ARE BELONG TO US!
Here’s the scoop:
Throughout November, about 35 Soldiers loosened, lifted, carried and otherwise dismantled the Mabey Johnson Bridge five miles south of Tikrit, and moved it to Assydnia, near Forward Operating Base Anaconda.
Seven floating spans connected two land spans, and engineers dismantled one span at a time. Normally, engineers start in the middle when dismantling a bridge, but not this time, according to Lt. Christina Williams, a platoon leader with the 502nd Engineer Co.
“Normally, you wouldn’t break it down like we did, but the commander had security concerns. So instead we started on one of the land sides, with Soldiers pulling security,” Williams said.
If any bridges suddenly show up in your neighborhood overnight, contact MO immediately. We aren’t going to let Cheney get away with this.
UPDATE: ACE beat me by hours on this one…
