    FORWARD OPERATING BASE KALSU, Iraq – Coalition forces and Concerned Local Citizens found a large weapons cache containing more than 100 various munitions in southern Baghdad, Jan. 20.

    The scouts from 2nd Battalion, 502nd Paratrooper Infantry Regiment were able to find the cache with the help of local residents.

    "The residents are moving back to the area and giving us information, because they feel safe now," said 1st Lt. Daniel Stephens, from Brewster, NY. "They see that CLCs and U.S. troops are staying in the area to rid it of al-Qaida"

    The troops are working closely with local sheiks and CLCs to maintain security in the area.
