CAMP BLUE DIAMOND, Iraq - Brigadier Gen. Joseph J. McMenamin, assistant division commander for 2nd Marine Division, shakes hands with Gunnery Sgt. William Easton, staff non commissioned officer-in-charge of 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance after he received a Purple Heart, April 8, for injuries he received from a roadside explosion. An improvised explosive device (IED), used by insurgents as a way to inflict collateral damage from a distance, rocked through two convoys as they passed one another in opposite directions on a dirt road near the base, March 13. Easton and his team were providing security on the road from within their Light Armored vehicles and Humvees. U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Stephen D'Alessio (RELEASED)
