First patrol and new pictures from Day 4

I went out on my first patrol today with 3rd platoon of Bravo Company, and we searched a small village near the Pump House Barney FOB (Forward Operating Base) for weapons and intelligence. This patrol was very quiet in contrast to the Blue Bongo story I wrote several days ago. And this story is far more typical of what Bravo Company soldiers do 5-6 days a week.

Here is a link to the best pictures from the day:

Each picture has a caption, and together they form a photo essay of the patrol.
