    FORWARD OPERATING BASE LOYALTY, Iraq (Army News Service, July 9, 2007) - On April 10, Soldiers and their Iraqi counterparts started clearing a neighborhood in eastern Baghdad's Fadhl area. It began as a routine mission, but soon turned into a bloody firefight that lasted five hours and resulted in 14 wounded U.S. troops and scores of unknown enemy dead and wounded.

    But that was then. Just a few short months later, Soldiers from the 1st "Red Devil" Battalion, 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, Fort Bragg, N.C., operating as part of the 2nd Infantry Division's 2nd Infantry Brigade, drove into the heart of Fadhl July 5 delivering truckloads of food rations, medical supplies and water to the residents.

    Thanks Ken. Our guys are doing some good work over there, and would much rather do that than shoot people, given a choice.
