CONTINGENCY OPERATING LOCATION Q-WEST, Iraq - Sgt. Edwin L. Pauley (left), a scout truck commander from Salisbury, Md., and Spc. Michael A. Boucher, a scout truck driver from Batesville, Miss., examine the road mud caked beneath the mud flaps of the Self-Protection Adaptive Roller Kit in their company motor pool here Feb. 4. Boucher made additional mud flaps for the SPARKs - which is attached to the front of the vehicle, absorbing bomb damage and shielding the vehicle and crew - and those flaps have significantly increasing the safety, security and efficiency of his scout truck, said Pauley. Both men serve with 1st Platoon, B Company, 2nd Battalion, 198th Combined Arms, 155th Brigade Combat Team, out of Greenwood, Miss.
