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.

Chris Muir is the cartoonist that I met in Kuwait. He spent two weeks in Iraq at the same time I was there in February 2007, and so thought it would relevant to showcase his work on my site. Here is a link to Chris' humorous travelogue of this Iraq trip: http://billroggio.com/archives/2007/03/arrival_alignright_v.php
