This article presents information regarding the role of U.S. military in Iraq. In an effort to bring peace and stability to Iraq, Airmen at Balad Air Base, Iraq, consistently face mortar and rocket attacks from an enemy focused on seeing them fail. Airmen are collocated with more than 20,000 Soldiers assigned to the 13th Corps Support Command responsible for the operation of Logistical Support Area Anaconda, the largest Army supply center in Iraq. At the root of the base upgrade is Major Eric Higgs, officer in charge of engineering and installations.
