Iraq

Jon has spent two years in Iraq, serving with the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment (Dragon Co.) out of Ft. Carson, Colorado. The most recent pictures were taken in or near Tal Afar. This was a target of the insurgency in the summer of 2005. The first tour was in 2003-2004. The regiment was spread out in Anbar Province.

Most of the pictures were taken by 1st Sgt. Callahan using an Olympus P&S. These soldiers are back
at Ft. Carson, having spent two of the last three years in Iraq. This regiment lost scores of young men during these two tours - about 91 according to Jon.

Jon returned to Iraq in August 2008, this time with the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 4th ID.
