IED's

Marines of K Company, 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment found an assortment of improvised explosive device materials and munitions in the car belonging to an insurgent sniper near Habbaniyah, Iraq June 16. A Marine sniper from Sniper Section Four killed the insurgent gunman when his spotter, 26-year-old Sgt. Kevin Homestead noticed the man was videotaping a nearby patrol of amphibious assault vehicles from his car with a high-powered rifle at his side. The Marine sniper team shot and killed the shooter and the driver who was spotting for the insurgent sniper. Only later did they discover they killed an insurgent who was using a Marine M-40A1 sniper rifle taken from a team of Marines killed in Ramadi nearly two years before.
