Brad Aune of Fargo crouches amid unexploded mortar shells, rockets, artillery rounds and other munitions found cached in a hillside in Iraq by members of Fox Battery, 1/188th Air Defense Artillery. While serving in Iraq, Aune often came under enemy fire, which can sound like fireworks. He said these days his children let him know when they're going to set off fireworks. He thinks it would help some veterans if their neighbors would do the same. (Photo supplied by Brad Aune/Special to The Forum)
