It may be called ‘silly’ string, but soldiers say the cans provide serious help in Iraq. A New Jersey mother of a solider in Iraq found a shipping company to send about 80,000 cans of silly string overseas.

The mom says the troops can use the foamy substance to detect trip wires on bombs. Since the string comes in aerosol cans, only certain companies with experience in hazardous materials can send it. A New Jersey company will inspect the cans before shipping them to Iraq.
