AR RAMADI, Iraq (April 18, 2005) -Knowing the importance of hydration, Marines with 3rd Platoon, Company C, 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, sit in the back of a 7-ton truck and drink Gatorade before hitting the streets and conducting an aggressive combat patrol. The Marines revisited a portion of the city here where, just two weeks ago, they engaged insurgents in the biggest firefight they've had since deploying here in early March. Nothing happened during this patrol, however, and the warriors returned safely to their firm base, Camp Snake Pit. Photo by Cpl. Tom Sloan.
