” the last full measure of devotion…..”

The troops above are pictured as they “RE-ENLISTED” in Iraq’s multi-national force; the number of 588 included 161 granted full naturalization as Americans. Two more were singled out for special mention as they had died on operations against the terrorist insurgency which has blighted their country for over three years.

Got to admit, there’s a certain strength in guys who have done one tour of duty in what must be the most dangerous army operational area in the world, and then re-upping for another go round the tread-mill!
