Joint Coalition And Iraqi Workers Rebuild Damaged Site
Just five days after the new Combat Outpost Inman was hit by a devastating suicide place, there are already efforts being made to rebuild the damage.
A suicide Al Qaeda vehicle crashed the combat outpost gates on March 23rd, and exploded. 35 Iraqi soldiers were wounded, and 13 Iraqi Soldiers died from the explosion.
Despite the attempt to destroy the Combat Outpost, the Iraqi Army soldiers never abandoned our post. They held onto it with faith that help would come later.
The help that as arrived is in the Form of Army Corps of Engineer soldiers. Some of the first help arrived this last week, when they arrived to start the swift reconstruction of Combat outpost Inman. Both of the Engineer units that responded had just completed other projects nearby and had made independent assessments of the project.
Heavy equipment began the process and cleared the area, and then front-end loaders brought in materials swiftly. With the Coalition Soldiers working full speed the efforts of the Iraqi Army added to the project, and the outpost began to take shape again with amazing speed.
“The forces from the Iraqi Army have been super, they worked last night to assist with Hescos barriers,” said Lieutenant Nathan Foust. Lieutenant Foust is with the 232nd Engineer Company.
“By rebuilding we demonstrate our will to continue, to fight, to win, and not to abandon what is right,” said Lieutenant Foust.
