One of hundreds of searches in Iraq. (cc welcomed)

Here are a few photos I took while deployed to Iraq last year. These were taken with a Canon G9. These photos were of one of the hundreds of searches we did. We found several weapons and bomb making materials in this village. The homes were made of scraps of anything they could find, it really made me realize just how fortunate I am to have a nice home and freedom. I hope my images help those that view them to remember just how fortunate we all are. Thanks for looking and please comment on and critique my images.

1. My platoon searches a village for weapons and bomb making materials.

2. Curious Iraqi children ponder as we search a village for weapons and bomb making materials.

3. Our medic searches for weapons and bomb making material.

4. The Iraqi police search a village with our platoon.

5. Our medic tells me he misses his family as we search a village.

6. Our medic holds a puppy that an Iraqi child tried to sell him while we searched his home.

7. An Iraqi policeman took this photo of me and his fellow officer.
