In Pictures: From Rusafa to Sadr City
The 3rd Squadron of the 89th Cavalry conducts operations across central and northeast Baghdad: from the Tigris River, to downtown, to residential areas in northern Rusafa District, to the edge of conflict areas in Sadr City. The 3-89 Cav's missions include force protection of Iraqi Police Stations, day and night mounted and dismounted patrols, and raids on suspected Mahdi Army roadside bomb and weapons caches.
Correction: The slideshow initially reported in error that Specialist Jeffrey Nichols was killed by a suicide car bomber. In fact, Nichols was killed by a remotely detonated car bomb.
