Remembering the Fallen: the battle of An Nasiriyah

A mural painted on the wall of the 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment headquarters building memorializes the 18 Marines who gave their lives during the battle of An Nasiriyah, Iraq, March, 23, 2003. “One of the things we want to do for the battalion is to keep the history alive and [provide] an understanding for all of our Marines and sailors of what their battalion has done throughout the years.” said Sosa. “This gives us an opportunity to highlight a significant element of the battalion’s history in the war we are still fighting and the incredible things the young Marines and sailors are able to accomplish.”
