    V Corps

    At the end of 2002, V Corps deployed to Kuwait. The Corps crossed into Iraq on 21 Mar. 2003 as the main effort. In sixteen days of fighting, V Corps advanced more than 540 miles from Kuwait to Baghdad, decisively defeating the Iraqi Armed Forces. On 15 June 2003, the corps formed Combined Joint Task Force 7 and continued military operations. As part of the CJTF7 mission, V Corps soldiers sought out and arrested or killed the major figures in the previous Iraqi regime, culminating in the arrest of Saddam Hussein. In recognition of its combat achievements in Iraq, the Department of the Army awarded the Meritorious Unit Commendation to the "Victory Corps" in 2004. (U.S. Army Infographic by Pfc. Devin Klecan)
