RODRIGUEZ LIVE FIRE COMPLEX, South Korea - U.S. Soldiers sprayed down humvees leaving the Rodriguez Live Fire Complex to help prevent the spread of foot-and-mouth disease Jan. 22.

The effort was conducted by the 4th Chemical Company, Brigade Special Troops Battalion, 1st Heavy Brigade Combat Team and the 4th Squadron, 7th Cavalry Regiment, assigned to the 2nd Infantry Division.

"The application of these procedures is important to ensure we are in no way exacerbating the spread of this terrible virus and causing any further harm to the Korean agricultural industry," said 4-7th Cav Commander Lt. Col. Mike Adams.
