F Troop deals final blow to building that set off IED

March 29 - A tank from Ft. Hood-based F Troop, 2nd Squadron, 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment, is seen moments after firing its main gun at a house used as a trigger point for an IED attack on their commander's Humvee near Balad Ruz.

CPT Torre Mallard was killed along with SGT Phillip Anderson and SPC Donald Burkett in the attack on March 10. Their interpreter was also killed and another Soldier injured.

“It was a little bit of a psychological operation,” 1st Sgt. Zeneido Gonzalez said.
