My USMC Pictures in Iraq, Post Invasion, Part 4

Some more photos I took after the initial topple of Saddam.
The military installation is quite large, that photo is over a mile away. The Iraqi's fleeing like cowards abandoned it when their forward observer post reported the U.S. Marines were advancing.

Some of the damaged Marine Corps vehicles I retrieved being loaded for shipment back to the USA.

Look how isolated everything is. The people have all left fearing the war is not over.

An Iraqi Oil Well on fire. That fire is miles away and you can smell the burning oil, it fills your lungs as the wind shifts.

One of the Iraqi Oil Storage Tanks in the desert, it's near a pipeline.

My USMC Pictures in Iraq, Post Invasion, Part 3

More pictures are right after the topple of Saddam's Government.
I was part of the first group that invaded Iraq and part of the very first group to remain behind. All of my unit went home but three of us, and one guy left a few days after I snap these photos.
You can see one of the Forward Iraqi Observation Post plus smoke from a fire on a damaged oil pipeline..
