Perfectly Timed Photos

Some photos capture more detail than the person there, holding the camera, could possibly perceive. Like the 120mm mortar round coming out of the tube, or the 155 round just ahead of the explosion below. I think that's a German self propelled artillery piece.

U.S. Army Pfc. Jerry Cleveland (left) and Spc. Brett Mitchell fire a 120mm mortar during combat operations in the Da'udzay Valley in the Zabol Province of Afghanistan on Oct. 23, 2007. Cleveland and Mitchell are attached to Alpha Company, 1st Battalion, 4th Infantry International Security Assistance Force (ISAF). The operation is a joint Afghan National Army and ISAF mission to clear anti-government elements from the Dawzi area in the Zabol province. DoD photo by Sgt. 1st Class Jim Downen, U.S. Army.

They may be attached to the 4th, but one of them has a 1st Armored Division (Old Ironsides) on his shoulder.
