Only in the US Army.

A mini-mushroom cloud billows behind Army engineers from E Company, 1st Battalion, 77th Armor Regiment “Steel Tigers” and Explosive Ordnance Disposal technicians attached to 4th Brigade, 1st Armored Division. The detonation was designed to eliminate loose unexploded ordnance and illegal munitions seized by Iraqi security forces in Dhi Qar province. The battalion is deployed from Fort Bliss, Texas, to advise and assist the Iraqi army and Iraqi police in Dhi Qar and Muthanna provinces.
