Get to Know 'Steve-O'

It's been months since they fought in the Western desert of Iraq, and the soldiers of the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment are home now, settled back into their old lives. But, a 15-year-old Iraqi boy keeps them focused on Iraq — a place they'd rather forget. During their year at war, they were attacked up to ten times a day and the locals were unable to provide enough good intelligence to stop the attacks.  After months of getting mostly dead-end intelligence, an unlikely informer showed up at their base to volunteer his help.

The soldiers say they owe a drop in the number of attacks — and their lives — to an Iraqi teenager nicknamed Steve-O. Steve-O led them to the insurgents and helped turn the tide of the war in this part of Iraq. I spent two days with the men of Dragon Company at their home base in Fort Carson, Colorado to talk about this young hero.
