THE ROUNDUP

We are all familiar with the War in Iraq in some way, shape or form.

Some of us look at Iraq as a success, while others look at it as a failure.

The Iraq War began March 20, 2003, with the U.S. invasion of Iraq under the administration of President George W. Bush.

Operation Enduring Iraqi Freedom came to a close Sept. 1 as the military replaced it with Operation New Dawn.

New Dawn offers a change in operational procedure, it emphasizes that the remaining 50,000 troop oversee should instruct the newly formed Iraqi forces and provide training for their Army.

The majority of combat troops in Iraq boarded military transports and flew towards the comfort and safety of U.S. borders.
