Iraqi soldiers joke around with their Marine advisor, Capt. Jonathan Bonar, before stepping off on a patrol though the town of Habbaniyah. Marines like Bonar are assigned to Military Transition Teams, or MiTTs, and are responsible for advising and training Iraqi soldiers who they live and operate with. A typical MiTT has 10-15 U.S. service members deployed for a year and are part of the U.S. effort to create an independent Iraqi army. Pic: 1LT Robert Shuford
