Petraeus congratulated the Soldiers on their successful counterinsurgency operations since their arrival to the district in September. "You are setting the standard for the rest of the country. What you are accomplishing here will be remembered in the historic rebuilding of Iraq." (Staff Sgt. Margaret C. Nelson serves with the  1st Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mtn.
