FORWARD OPERATING BASE KALSU, Iraq — Police in Babil, Iraq, received school supplies from their 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division partners at Forward Operating Base Kalsu, Dec. 6.

The police officers will distribute 2,000 backpacks filled with notebooks, coloring books, pencils and pens to the children in their province.

"These supplies will help Babil children and their families," said Wesam al Zabayde, a television producer for the Babil provincial police. "By distributing these, we hope to show the local people that we care about them."

According to the public affairs officer for the provincial police, Maj. Muthana, the backpacks will be distributed, Jan. 9, as part of the celebration for the Iraqi national police's birthday at their headquarters in Hillah.

"We will make sure that the families of our fallen policemen or those who were injured get these supplies for their children," said Muthana.

In addition to the school supplies, the 3rd HBCT also gave the policemen pamphlets outlining the current security agreement between the United States and Iraq.

"We want to encourage the Iraqi security forces we are working with to let the people they serve know how we are operating," said Staff Sgt. Patrick Byers, Psychological Operations Detachment 3031 out of Pittsburgh, 305 PSYOP Company, assigned to 3rd HBCT. "We are making sure our units are staying within the agreement."
