ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the contribution of the U.S. Marine Corps. in Iraq. Preparing Marines for Iraq and maintaining them at full effectiveness became the focus for 2004, as the Corps continued to make superlative contributions to the global war against Islamic insurgency and terrorism. The most significant contribution was the return of 26,000 Marines to Iraq in March. Under the command of I Marine Expeditionary Force (I MEF) commander Lieutenant General James T. Conway, the Marines were assigned to rotate with Army forces in the Sunni-dominated Al Anbar province that include Fallujah and Ar Ramadi.
