A Mine Resistant and Ambush Protected “Buffalo” vehicle from Reaper platoon, Company A, 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion, Regimental Combat Team 1 creeps down a rural road with its flood lights revealing the ground below, allowing combat engineers to observe for any suspicious objects in their path during a route clearance mission. The Reapers have successfully cleared nearly 9,000 miles of roads throughout the area of operations at a crawling pace of 10 miles per hour, and discovered six improvised explosive devices during their seven month deployment.
