Description

The National Guard and the War on Terror: Operation Iraqi Freedom is the third and final volume in a series that records the National Guard's participation to date in America's first war of the twenty-first century. This volume provides a battle history of the National Guard's role in the early years of the Iraq War. Guard members were more than effective in helping to restore essential services, local economies, and good governance, while introducing peace and democracy to the Iraqi people. The contributions and sacrifices of National Guard men and women reminded the American people that the National Guard is an essential combat reserve.
