Soldiers with the 4th Battalion 23rd Infantry Regiment 172nd Stryker Brigade play tourist under the Saddam-era "Swords of Triumph" monument in the Green Zone on Friday September 1, 2006. For most of the soldiers with the brigade, which was previously based in Mosul, this is their first time in Baghdad. The 172nd was extended at the last moment - with portions of the brigade already back in the States - when they were called upon to bolster security forces in Baghdad seeking to get a handle on a massive wave of sectarian killings in the Iraqi capital.
