Maj. Gen. Joseph F. Fil Jr., commander, Multi-National Division-Baghdad and the 1st Cavalry Division, in a New Year's message to his Soldiers.

In the short time since we've been here we completed a seamless transition of authority, worked tirelessly to assist the good people of Iraq, we've fought a ruthless enemy and witnessed the first transition of provincial control to the citizens of Najaf.
