"What would you say you do here?"

Many people ask me, "What exactly is it that you do in Iraq?" My answers have often been rather cryptic because of operational security reasons. As I have said before, if you can read it, so can the bad guys (and we don't want that)! What I can point you to is "official" sources that have been published. Because they have already been approved for release, there is no OPSEC issue in quoting them. According to the official Joint CREW Composite Squadron One (JCCS-1) website, our mission is:
to suppress the RCIED threat to coalition forces and reduce casualties through enhanced electronic warfare coordination and JCREW operations, training, and readiness.
Perhaps still a bit broad and/or cryptic. The 4th Infantry Division to the rescue! They recently published an article about what we do, which can be found here.

P.S. Who can guess the source of the quotation that makes up the title of this post? Extra credit for the character's name as well.
