U.S., Iraqi Forces Winning in Western Anbar Province, Colonel Says

While on a routine meet and greet, Marines from Company L, 3rd Battalion, 23rd Marine Regiment, Regimental Combat Team 5, came across a family with a two-year-old girl in need of heart surgery. The battalion surgeon examined Amenah Al'a Thabit, and determined that she had a congenital heart condition, and was in urgent need of surgery. The battalion, in conjunction with full Iraqi government support, along with the U.S. State Department and the Department of Homeland Security gave support in getting Amenah the help she needed. The surgery is being done at no cost to the family with all the money being privately donated. Amenah is scheduled to return home one month after the surgery. (U.S. Marine Corps Photo/Lance Cpl.
