Let's take a movie break, shall we?
There's a full screen toggle at the bottom of the video player above. Enjoy.
Multi-National Division-Center (MND-C) was formed in the early months of 2007 - a key part of the strategy commonly called "the surge". The Third Infantry Division, dubbed "Task Force Marne" in Iraq, took command of the newly defined area of operations (AO) in March of that year.
By June all surge Brigades (sub-components of the Division, each with an assigned battlespace within the MND-C AO) were in place, and full spectrum combat operations began in earnest. As noted previously, by the end of the year - after much blood and sweat equity - the need for combat ops had fallen significantly. MND-C was thus able to shift its focus to "non-lethal operations" - assisting in rebuilding Iraq. The early results of that effort can be seen in the video above.
