Kosovo—The Bosnian crud has some potential new targets. "The crud" is what US soldiers with the Stabilization Force in Bosnia and Herzegovina call the upper respiratory tract infections that are diagnosed whenever new troops arrive. Its latest targets may be more than 3200 10th Mountain Division troops who completed their deployment to the former Yugoslavian province in October from Fort Drum, New York. They are relieving the Fort Hood, Texas–based 1st Cavalry Division.
