A small overhang offers little protection against the cold drizzle for soldiers of 3rd Squadron, 2nd Cavalry Regiment during a patrol in the village of Himbiss, near Muqdadiyah, Iraq. The soldiers are taking part in Operation Iron Harvest, which is meant to kill or capture al Qaida fighters who fled into rural areas of Diyala province after the surge of U.S. troops into Baqhdad and Baqubah last year.
