Gen. David Petraeus, the commanding general of Multi-National Force - Iraq, speaks to the men and women of 1st Battalion, 87th Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade, 10th Mountain Division at Forward Operating Base McHenry in Hawijah, Iraq, June 14, during a battle field circulation of northern Iraq. "It's only fitting during the U.S. Army's 233rd birthday, that I share this day with the men and women of the 10th Mountain," Petraeus said. He told the Task Force Summit Soldiers that they have proven to the skeptics, that a year ago thought a walk through Hawijah would not be possible, that they are wrong.
