Cpl. Kristine L. Jones, a 23-year-old native of Spring, Texas, sends a parcel down the ramp to an awaiting X-ray machine here July 26, 2006, where it will be scanned for any suspicious content. The post offices here and at seven other locations throughout Iraq and Afghanistan are utilizing X-ray machines to search for items including ammunition (live rounds and spent casings), grenades, shrapnel and magazines for weapons. The systems now in place serve as a precautionary safeguard throughout Iraq and Afghanistan, providing a more accurate way to ensure all mail is thoroughly scanned - and searched if necessary - for contraband before receiving a final X-ray at Bahrain.
No camera details available.
