HIT, Iraq- (July 4, 2005) A member of the Iraqi Security Force (ISF) pours water from his helmet onto another ISF's head, who is trying to wash his hair of sweat and sand from patrolling all day. During Operation River Sweep III, the Marines of 2d Marine Division 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.
