Lt. Gen. Raymond T. Odierno quote
Lt. Gen. Raymond T. Odierno, commander, Multinational Corps Iraq, who said that by living, eating and patrolling with Iraqi forces throughout the country, U.S. Soldiers are getting known by the Iraqi people they are working to protect.

When I go out on a patrol, the Iraqis will start asking about folks who aren't with us. They'll ask 'Where's Sergeant Z today'' And they actually ask why that person isn't out. So the relationships are building.
