Soldiers with Bravo Company 4BN 23rd Infantry Regiment of the 172nd Stryker Brigade take a break from  the brutal Iraqi August heat following a successful search for weapons in the offices of the Iraqi Islamic Party in the Baghdad Sunni neighborhood of Ghazaliyah. The discovery - part of an operation by bolstered US and Iraqi forces in the hopes of getting a handle on the extraordinary numbers of sectarian killings in Baghdad - was carried out in Baghdad, Iraq on Tuesday August 15, 2006. The brigade, which was in the process of rotating home at the end of a year tour in Mosul and northwestern Iraq, was diverted to the capital for an undetermined number of additional months.
