Graphic means this and I really was really lucky actually.
In the early days of liberated Iraq's security throughout the country was -- -- us and Iraqi citizens were both helpful and where.

-- then army major was a brigade public affairs officer with the third infantry division.
She was promoted lieutenant colonel in 2008.
And serves today as public affairs advisor for the army chief of staff general Ray Odierno -- the job I'll agree -- network plan.
Typical day is getting up early scaring the news and making sure that he has information and he needs.
Stuff that's been reported on that's pertinent to the army lieutenant colonel -- -- duty -- the Pentagon.
Which is often on the move with general Odierno this past weekend we went up to New York City he did -- morning showing her views and just -- in the veterans day parade.

The first time I was deployed to Iraq we -- a lot of media coming -- from the states and so we're able to get them out with the units and you know get the true embedding experience and it's not.
They get to go to missions and seeing the soldiers and what they're doing an action and that you know enable me to -- to better tell the story of -- -- soldiers were doing.
-- -- -- The units -- school openings with the Iraqi community.
And now it's just fantastic you know just seeing the kids -- to get the education that they that they needed.
One of the most memorable moments in Iraq was on October 15 2005.
When the Iraqis went to the polls to vote on the new constitution.
To see the Iraqis leaving a polling stations and -- -- -- their fingers and and that was just very inspirational -- -- music history of the country.

-- division commander was.
Major general lynch.
War stories accompanied major general lynch when he visited commands in the third I.
Like all public affairs officers lieutenant colonel Conway worked with the media to get their story out to the American public.
Sometimes it was a challenging assignment.
You feel -- every time as a casualty even though you may not know that.
That service member tears you apart because you know others -- stateside it's gonna receive that news.
I would say that the best part of my job.
We're actually getting out and and seen the Iraqi People -- got to see the progress on the ground it's a little things from getting a town running water.
We put in generators to help with the -- situation so that was always important.
Today lieutenant colonel -- is proud of her -- in the US army.
All comes down to the people serve where it -- it's here teammates it's the fellow soldiers and families that you cannot walk away.

The Pennsylvania National Guard.
That December -- unit was providing security for Iraq's first parliamentary elections voter turnout was nearly 70%.
We had a good security plans set out to Nazareth or before they -- more problems we were in -- you know one of the highest turnout.
Despite the increased sense of optimism there was still plenty of violence.
Really a lethal flight thought that.
It was pretty tense there's -- by these results indirect fire.
Look so bad then they extract for we have lost six soldiers -- ten.
And ever since then it it was -- that the threat was always there -- voice that complacency kills me always wanted to try to.
Drive into your soldiers that mean you can't let up you gotta maintain that.
Aggressive -- -- at all times.
Materials tailored look after each other because you know what's -- thing got -- quite for the big picture quite hear your -- decide.

Captain Fritz of the soldiers were back in Iraq.
After a full year of duty fists flew home on Christmas Day 2005.
I was actually supposed to get of the army before my third tour occurred.
I would stop Lawson and April of 2007.
Stop laws that's the term used when troops are required to remain in service beyond their original contract.
After the press given the solutions.
January of this year we were going work.
So that was very frustrating.
I -- on the other hand though.
All the guys that I knew would work with and had fought with previously were going back again cancer I was terribly disappointed that I was going to get to go back and and and be with them again.
In December 2007.
And on his third tour captain Fritz gave war stories.
This assessment of the surge because of the search.
We've actually been able to quell a lot of violence and that.
-- We end -- defeating al-Qaeda and violence Baghdad act.
