Sergeant Charles Barr (right), B Co., 1/30th Inf. Regt., and his platoon leader, 1st Lt. Gavin Shnieder, observe for suspicious persons and activities in a marketplace while on a routine patrol in downtown Kirkuk, Iraq in late Dec. 2009. Less than a month later, Sgt. Barr was wounded by small arms fire during another routine patrol in Kirkuk, proving that no combat patrol is routine.
