    Sgt. 1st Class Henry Rhodes, of Sanford, N.C., gives snack crackers to Iraqi children during a mission with fellow Company D, 252nd Combined Arms Battalion, 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team Soldiers, in the rural Jalabi village, in the Radwaniyah District, just south of Baghdad, July 24. Rhodes, a platoon sergeant, quickly became popular with the children and they followed him around the rest of the time the Soldiers were in the area. Rhodes said it was the first time any coalition forces had stopped at the village in more than a year, which was one reason for the excitement from the children. Soldiers were in the area to speak to local leaders about the possibility of helping with improvements in the area.
