Bless the Beasts and Children, Part 3

In “Bless the Beasts and Children,” the soldiers of C-Company were introduced to readers thus:

On 29 June, American and Iraqi soldiers were again fighting side-by-side as soldiers from Charley Company 1-12 CAV—led by Captain Clayton Combs—and Iraqi soldiers from the 5th IA, closed in on a village on the outskirts of Baqubah. The village had the apparent misfortune of being located near a main road—about 3.5 miles from FOB Warhorse—that al Qaeda liked to bomb. Al Qaeda had taken over the village. As Iraqi and American soldiers moved in, they came under light contact; but the bombs planted in the roads (and maybe in the houses) were the real threat.

Baqubah was the wild west back in 2006-2007 (OIF IV). Easily one of the worst areas in Iraq. Our guys were getting into TICs daily. Great work MIchael.
