Area of Operations (Fallujah boundries between Regiments)

Our area of operations on the left and an interesting satellite photo of Fallujah (not our area). The USMC and Army unleashed six regiments on Fallujah Iraq, Ramadi was on both sides of a river and not near as nicely laid out for an assault and never was cleared like Fallujah was. Here we are talking six regiments walking through and killing any AIF they encountered, much different from what we generally did in our daily misions. We operated in sections most of the most of the time and had little contact, we did have IEDs quite often . This is what we had expected to do. It did not quite work out that way.
