On 27 February2006 soldiers from 1-71 CAV Regiment patrolled the streets of Baghdad, Iraq taking notice of Iraqi tanks scattered through out the city. The Governor of Iraq ordered the all Armored Company's to take security positions within through out the city to deter further civil violence by unruly protesters. Most Iraqi civilians didn't pay any attention to the tanks. It was a very peaceful day.
