Brcko, Bosnia and Herzegovina, September, 1997: Staff Sgt. Joseph Young of Vilseck, Germany-based Company D, 2-2 Infantry, stands guard duty in front of a street sign adorned with a poster of fugitive Bosnian Serb wartime leader Radovan Karadzic. The hole in the center of Karadzic's forehead was caused by shrapnel from a grenade that exploded two months earlier, but the message may have been less political than one might expect: A person involved in a lovers' triangle reportedly spotted the other two together at a cafe and tossed the grenade from a passing vehicle. No one was injured.
