The operation was the first of its kind in the area where Iraqi soldiers and Marines conduct daily security patrols, weeding out insurgents and the improvised explosive devices terrorists plant alongside Iraq’s roadways. Here, Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael Christoforo, a 32-year-old from St. Marys, Ga., and hospital corpsman for 3rd Civil Affairs Group, conducts a medical evaluation of an Iraqi boy June 10, in the village of Al Amari near the Iraqi-Syrian border. The team of Iraqi soldiers, Marines, and Navy corpsmen set up their temporary medical clinics at elementary schools in each town. Within several hours, more than 100 Iraqis received an evaluation by the Americans. The large turnout for the village of less than 1, 000 Iraqis was a clear sign that cooperation is improving between Iraqis and the Iraqi Army, according to Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael Christoforo, a hospital corpsman with the 3rd Civil Affairs Group.
