Two elderly Iraqi women peer out from the gate of their apartment building to watch passing American troops as the troops - members of the 4th Battalion 23rd Infantry Regiment 172nd Stryker Brigade - move through the Baghdad Sunni district of Adhamiyah on Friday September 1, 2006. 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.
