The inaugural group of biathletes takes off during Task Force Marne's first biathlon at Contingency Operating Base Speicher, near Tikrit, Iraq, Feb. 27. Forty-two competitors ran more than 7.4 miles to and from a range, putting on all their personal protective equipment to fire 10 rounds at a 25-meter target, before running back in their ACUs and boots with rifles.
