A Marine with 3rd Battalion, 24th Marine Regiment, extends his hand to an Iraqi shepherd near Al Kabani, an Iraqi village in the Al Anbar Province, on Aug. 26, 2004. Marines with the battalion visited the village to see new furniture the unit bought for the school and to drop off supplies, such as notebooks, pens and crayons that were donated by family and friends of the troops. Elements of the battalion provide security for nearby Camp Taqaddum, home of the headquarters of the 1st Force Service Support Group. Headquartered in Bridgeton, Mo., the battalion has awarded contracts worth more than $200,000 for numerous improvements for the communities near Camp Taqaddum.
