CAMP KOREAN VILLAGE, Iraq – The battalion will have several missions to conduct, but one of the most important is the continued transition from coalition forces to Iraqi security forces controlling the area.
“We are here to return the control of the country to the Iraqi people and to provide them with a self-sufficient and stable government,” said Maj. Stuart M. Harness, executive officer of 2nd LAR Bn.
“Since the Marines came to Iraq in 2003, my country is a lot better than before,” said Aziz Shalan, a commando with Iraqi border patrol. “Life is good here.”
