    Iraq army doctors conduct medical examinations on Sons of Iraq (Abna al-Iraq) during an Iraqi police recruiting drive in Sab al Bour, Aug. 21, 2008. The aim for the recruiting drive is to increase security measures in the area and provide local citizens of Iraq with an opportunity to receive a legitimate government-paying job. In the past the SoI program was a coalition forces initiative to help the security situation within Iraq while, at the same time, gaining support from the local citizens to help deter the past high crime rate.
