Soldiers improve Sadr City area security

Multi-National Division - Baghdad Soldiers hook up concrete barriers, also known as "T-Walls," to a crane during an effort to improve security in the surroundings of the southern portion of the Sadr City district of Baghdad May 3. The Soldiers from Company A, 64th Brigade Support Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, are helping improve the security at here by placing barriers along the roads. These Mountaineer Soldiers provided security while Soldiers from other units emplace the barriers. During one mission, more than 90 barriers were set in place, which will help protect Iraqi citizens, Iraqi security forces and MND-B Soldiers along the way from small-arms fire, improvised-explosive device and rocket attacks.
