ABSTRACT
The article describes the work of soldiers who belong to the United States Army's 411th Civil Affairs Battalion in Iraq. Their main task is to support the commander in his relationship with the local population. One task they have done was talking with Iraqi businessmen to assess the effects of Iraq's elections on business and the possible creation of a chamber of commerce. Members of the battalion enforce the rules of engagement and determine quickly who the enemy is and who the civilians are.
