BAGHDAD - Spc. Nick Anderson, of Hanover, Minn., a radio operator assigned to C Company, Division Special Troops Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division, prepares a fiber optic cable for installation in a building at Joint Security Station Ur, here, June 19. Chief Warrant Officer Scott Broten, a signal systems support technician from Harker Heights, Texas, said the cables allow signals to travel for several kilometers as opposed to 100 meters for Ethernet cables. "What we are doing is part of the process of units moving out of the city," Anderson said. "We are running fiber optic cables between areas that are too far apart for regular cables."
