Gratuitous "War Chalking" Photo

Since so many sites had posts about the marking of buildings during search operations, I figure I might as well too.

I must confess that seeing these marks gave me a start. Not because of the possible morbid results of a search or such. Rather, they are too close to the markings I saw on many a mud brick wall in the northeastern corner of Afghanistan where I was stationed. Those markings denoted mine clearing efforts and their results. While I know the marks are not the same, it still is jolting to see something like them in an American city...

Basically it was a general search and rescue (not a called in one or such), no one present alive, no one present deceased, and the search took place on September 10th.
