After stacking on a “wall,” members of an Iraqi platoon assigned to 2nd Battalion, 21st Regiment, 5th Iraqi Army Division, enter and clear a room during a “glass house” exercise, an imaginary room with outlined walls simulating an actual building structure, at Kirkush Military Training Base, Feb. 8, 2011. U.S Division-North soldiers assigned to Company A, 1st Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment, 2nd Advise and Assist Brigade, 25th Infantry Division, provided their Iraqi counterparts with room clearance training as part of a 25-days training cycle, Tadreeb Al Shamil, Arabic for All Inclusive Training. Tadreeb al Shamil is an Iraqi-led initiative to enhance the Iraqi Army’s ground force capabilities. “Gimlet” soldiers of Company A, 1st Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment, 2nd AAB, are training Iraqi jinood in support of Tadreeb al Shamil, guiding Iraqi officers and non-commissioned officers to take a leading role in providing modern military tactics, such as small-unit tactics for operations in an urban terrain.
