BLACK HEARTS AND PAINTED GUNS: A Battalion's Journey into Iraq's Triangle of Death

BLACK HEARTS AND PAINTED GUNS: A Battalion's Journey into Iraq's Triangle of Death
by Eads, kelly and Morgan, Daniel

1-235670

Early in their deployment to Iraq, the 2nd Battalion brought the fight directly to the enemy by setting up patrol bases in the local areas where they lived and operated. Soon they built a reputation for themselves, becoming known to the enemy as the Black Hearts - The 502nd had been distinguished on the battlefield by black hearts on their helmets since World War II. Their Scout Platoon became known as Painted Guns due to their practice of camouflaging their rifles.

During deployments, the battalion would experience thousands of Improvised Explosive Devices and firefights. They would spend countless hours in blistering 120-degree desert heat, controlling roads and preventing enemy freedom of movement; and would dedicate months to hunting enemy mortar teams and terror cells. Details a rollercoaster of combat experiences during the hunt for the most violent terrorist in Iraq, Abu Mus'ab Zarqawi.
