Just wanted to point out that the citation #2 is incorrect. The authors name is George C. Herring, not Harring. Don't know how to change it, however, since it does not appear in the reference edit page.
I'm not sure how/where to suggest this or how to use the odd form of code used here... However, you may want to consider "search and avoid" a commonly used term in Iraq.
Search and avoid, was another Vietnam slang term. Keeping in mind that most of the men were drafted (or draft induced volunteers), no GI wanted to be the last man to die in Vietnam...as the withdrawal from the war began further evolving commencing in 1969. So the war transitioned from Search and Destroy to Search and Avoid; so men could live to return home. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 16:15, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
- Just completed the B-class assessment. My "yes" on supporting materials should be considered conditional. It has an image, but lacks an infobox and really doesn't seem complete from that aspect. The grammar could also be considered a conditional "no", as it's not as bad as some articles.Intothatdarkness (talk) 15:34, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
