U.S. Army 11th Engineer Battalion, Alpha Company and Bravo Company 3/7 with the 3rd Battalion, 69th Regiment Armor Task Force (Task Force 3-69) check for explosives in the water as they stand on a bridge as the Task Force takes Objective Peach and cross the Euphrates River just south of Baghdad April 2. The bridge was rigged with explosives on the western side of the bridge and one small section had been detonated without significant damage to the superstructure. Other explosives on the beams did not detonate and the engineers and EOD cleared the explosives while taking fire. (Jack Gruber/USA TODAY)
