Last MRAP home from Iraq

Ports America stevedore Marshall Jones, far right, keeps the truck's side to the crowd. The Army's final vehicle from Iraq came back to the United States, Monday, May 7, 2012, to be part of the First Cavalry Museum at Fort Hood. It is a Mine Resistant Armor Protected vehicle, or MRAP for short. The Army closed the gate behind it as it left Iraq and the vehicle was lifted off a military cargo vessel at the Port of Beaumont.
