This book represents eight years of effort in Iraq by American soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, coast guardsmen, Department of Defense civilians, contractors, and coalition partners who have made the sacrifice. This historical volume is not meant to document every event that has taken place over the years, but to highlight the service and sacrifice of our military and coalition partners who have created opportunities for the Iraqi people. Includes many color photographs.
