Remembering the Fallen: the battle of An Nasiriyah

Photos of Marines with 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment on amphibious assault vehicles, during the battle of An Nasariyah, March 2003, line the walls of the headquarters building. “One of the things that absolutely impressed me was that this was their first combat – my first combat – and you could see that [the Marines] were doing just what they were trained to do,” Sosa mentioned. “It was good to see the effect of months and years of training and I was very proud of every single one of them that day. The Marines did what you would expect of them, they continued to stay focused on the mission. They got the job done.”

  • First Lt. Sean Brookshire, a Black Hawk pilot deployed to Kosovo as part of Multinational Battle Group-East, talks with some of the students he has worked with since the beginning of his deployment. For the last five rotations, soldiers have partnered with a local school to help sponsor students who plan to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language exam. Brookshire said it was a great experience working with the kids, and getting to know the people of Kosovo. "It's fun, being able to see them grow throughout the course," he said. "But I have also learned that teaching is more about preparation, and what you put into it. As long as you care about the kids, and you want them to do well on the test, you can teach it."
