Soldiers Continue To Fight For Independence
At first there was a focus on the part of the Coalition to insure that the Iraqi Army and Security services had a efficient and effective basic training. The number of candidates for the military began to overwhelm the training, and so the coalition worked with the Iraqi Government to set up a basic training for all new Iraqi Army Soldiers.
Now, the basic training is both efficient and effective, and gives the new members of the Iraqi military the skills necessary to perform and be effective Iraqi Military Servicemembers. There is now a new brigade called the ?Samarra Brigade.
It is a unit of Iraqi Servicemembers that will work as a close knit unit, built to function as a fast response and precision military Iraqi Army Unit. It will serve formally as the 4th Brigade, 4th Iraqi Army division and will work to protect the 60 mile Samarra to Baghdad stretch of land.
In previous times the Iraqi Army was poorly trained, and made up of many members who were corrupt, serving the worst parts of the Saddam Hussein regime. As the Coalition has worked to clean out and reform the Iraqi Military, it has slowly changed into a precision and unified Force, one that has esprit de corps, and that works together for the good of the Iraqi people.
