(JNS.org) A U.S. Army captain developed a system that uncovered and ultimately prevented a terror plot to bomb a Jewish school in Denmark, the Pentagon said on Wednesday.

Capt. Bradley Grimm “helped develop a system to speed the flow of intelligence from here on the ground to various national capitals,” said Col. Steve Warren, an army spokesman based in Baghdad.

“Brad’s work likely saved the lives of Danish citizens,” Warren said, explaining that Grimm obtained “actionable intelligence” from “captured documents” that came from foreign fighters tied to Denmark.

As a result of Grimm’s work, a suspect in the school plot was arrested and homemade explosives were confiscated. Grimm was awarded the Danish Defense Medal for Special Meritorious Effort.
