AR RAMADI, Iraq (May 27, 2005) - During a mission in the city here, Staff Sgt. James M. Hussey, the platoon sergeant for 4th Platoon, Company A, 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, hands an Iraqi man a pro-coalition forces flier and points to a number he can call to report insurgent activity to coalition forces. The 28-year-old from Poughkeepsie, N.Y., led his fellow 4th Platoon warriors on a four-hour aggressive-foot-patrol through several neighborhoods and the city's marketplace. The Marines searched 12 houses and talked to numerous locals during the mission, which was conducted in an attempt to stifle insurgent activity and inform citizens why Marines and coalition forces are occupying Ramadi. The Marines handed out pro-coalition forces and pro-Iraqi government fliers, which had a number to call coalition forces to report insurgent activity. Photo by: Cpl. Tom Sloan
