Peter King of Sports Illustrated has his weekly column on NFL. In recent years, he has corresponded with Army First Sergeant Mike McGuire. McGuire leads a platoon that dismantles improvised explosive devices, especially around Baghdad and loves the St. Louis Rams.
Today, King shares an email that one of McGuire's men was killed by an EFP - an explosively formed penetrator, designed to cut through armor-plated vehicles. A sad day for our brave soldiers trying to bring peace to Iraq.
