My USMC Pictures in Iraq, The Invasion has begun, Part 2

1st Marine Expeditionary Force (MEF)
Invasion has started, little resistance, Iraqi's dropping weapons and running.
Glimpses of surprised civilians. Little resistance so far.
My unit is spearheading the column, my Hummer is toward the front of the attacking convoy.

I miss OIF 1... way different, no? We were the first army unit to cross. A co 1-30 3rd ID 3rd BDE. Fun times, and thanks for your pics! Bring back memories... (most of my entire military career in pics got lost when my hard drive was stolen days before ETS.) Keep it up.
