Camp Corregidor, Ramadi, Iraq. (June 06, 2006) An Army soldier taps a Marine on the shoulder to continue bounding across a smoke filled intersection notorious for sniper fire while on patrol in the city of Ramadi. The mission was part of the continuing support of the 2-28 BCT. 2-28 BCT is deployed with IMEF (FWD) in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in the Al Anbar province of Iraq (MNF-W) to develop the Iraqi security forces, facilitate the development of official rule of law through democratic government reforms, and continue the development of a market based economy centered on Iraqi reconstruction.
