Hi,

I blame Redleg for all the misery caused to me ........... I was Supposed to do this ........( oo I blame Canada too )


But as they Say it's never late ........ so Here goes :




^
On the first day of Operation Restoring Rights, the Blue Platoon pushed into Tall 'Afar from the south, clearing a mostly Shi'ite area first on their march through the streets



^
A U.S. Abrams tank blasts through the streets of Tall 'Afar, clearing the way for a planned siege of al-Qaeda's main stronghold


^
A special-forces soldier encounters enemy fire in Tall 'Afar, Iraq, Sept. 4


^
"Draining the Pond"
To avoid civilian casualties, troops conducted a massive operation to remove noncombatants from the city, a process the U.S. military calls "draining the pond"


^
Caught in the Middle
As fire fights rage around them, an Iraqi soldier stands guard while civilians from Tall 'Afar attempt to flee combat between insurgents and U.S.-led forces


^
Band of Brothers
Troops in Tall 'Afar pray with Chief Warrant Officer Gabriel Torney, shot in both legs while on a helicopter rescue mission. His co-pilot died

Peace

Both of you, nice pictures. I like the last picture that you posted, SwordFish_13, of the soldiers praying. We all have to remember to pray for them too...
