BARWANA, Iraq- An Iraqi Security Force soldier gives a piece sign with his finger that was dipped in purple ink, showing that he voted in the election for the new Iraqi constitution. The Marines of Regimental Combat Team 2 conduct counter-insurgency operations with Iraqi Security Forces to isolate and neutralize anti-Iraqi forces, to support the continued development of Iraqi Security Forces, and to support Iraqi reconstruction and democratic elections in order to create a secure environment that enables Iraqi self-reliance and self-governance.
