SALMAN PAK, Iraq - A U.S. Army humvee stops on a road in the small town of Salman Pak, Iraq in order for an Iraqi shepherd to guide his flock of goats across the road during a combined combat patrol July 30 in the Ma'dain region, located outside of southeastern Baghdad. Paratroopers assigned to Company B, 1st Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, Multi-National Division - Baghdad, and their Iraqi partners patrolled along the road in order to prevent the emplacement of improvised explosive devices and help keep local motorists and pedestrians safe along the canal road.
