U.S. Military Changed By IEDs

USA Today reports that “the rate of Americans dying or becoming dismembered by improvised explosive devices (IEDs), for 10 years the tormentor of U.S. forces, has dropped sharply as coalition troops withdraw from the battlefield. But lives still depend on what soldiers see or don’t see. It’s an enduring legacy of the homemade bomb that has created more American casualties over a decade and two wars than any other weapon.”
