IA, U.S. Soldiers work to end smuggling
The Iraqi Army and U.S. Soldiers work together and work hard to make Iraq a safter place.
"I really enjoy doing these missions with the Americans," said an Iraqi soldier.
Along the route, the Iraqi and U.S. Soldiers stopped in several villages where they handed out toys and school supplies to Iraqi children.
The Soldiers also distributed flyers with contact information for citizens to report criminal activities.
The following day, the members of the joint patrol positioned themselves on busy streets to conduct random vehicle inspections.
The Soldiers didn't discover any contraband or lethal munitions, but their solidarity of purpose to end the illegal smuggling continues to provide peace of mind to the citizens in the Maysan Province.
