Perhaps mindful of what’s going on back at Fort Lewis, the Stryker brigade’s public affairs officer in Iraq sent home some photos Wednesday showing what soldiers from Lt. Ehren Watada’s old unit were up to Tuesday in the capital’s Adhamiyah District. They’re part of the new security push that U.S. and Iraqi forces reportedly began this week. We’re posting two of them here.


Soldiers from the 5th Battalion, 20th Infantry Regiment patrolled warehouses and factories while searching for illegal weapons in the Baghdad security sweep that began Tuesday.


Sgt. Victor Jorgensen, a 5-20 infantryman from Tacoma, stopped with his unit’s interpreter – the guy at right – to try to teach some Iraqi kids how to use a yo-yo.
