A machine gunner from U.S. military
police (1st Battalion 37th Armored Regiment) sits at the top of
the Humvee vehicle during a routine street patrol in Baghdad. The
non-stop daily ambushes and attacks against U.S. forces in Iraq
have mostly happened during these patrols. This has put everyone
in tense moods during their missions. Just the next day, on July
21, an ambush killed a solider and his traslator, and destroyed
two Humvees from the same base.
