Here’s another good piece from the Los Angeles Times’ Alexandra Zavis, with an on-the-ground look at what the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Infantry Regiment is contending with in Dora, in the heart of Baghdad.

The headline says it all: “Iraq’s ‘Alamo’ simmers.”

Looking back on the past 15 months, the 2-3 and the rest of the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division Strykers have been up to their armpits in some of the toughest places in Iraq: Ghaziliyah, Dora, Haifa Street, Sadr City, Baqouba.
