Sgt. 1st Class Andrew Smith quote
Sgt. 1st Class Andrew Smith, a platoon leader from the 8th Cavalry Regiment, commenting Jan. 17 about his unit giving the Iraqis the lead throughout Salah ad Din Province.

It's kind of a reversal of roles. We've been doing missions which have been primarily American missions with Iraqi army support, and now we're trying to shift to where the Iraqi army is conducting the missions with American support.
