A luncheon brought together members of the government of Iraq and Iraqi security forces with members of the 3rd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division at Forward Operating Base Warhorse, Oct. 7.

The event, named "Partnership for Success", served as a celebration for the future partnership in Diyala province.

The event was attended by the deputy provincial governor of Diyala and the director of police for the province, along with many other local officials and shaykhs.

"Events like this showcase the strong bonds that make the partnership in the province work so well. Our ability as partners to come together to simply socialize really helps make this relationship one of comrades and friends," said 2nd Lt. Jennifer Palmeri, spokeswoman for 3/2 SBCT.
