Tea Time

Left to Right: A Muktar (Mayor) of a local Kurdish village visits with our interpreter, MSG Brooks and SSG Hosie. When we visit a village we ask around for the Muktar and when we find him he usually invites our platoon leaders to sit and drink Chai (tea with tons of sugar) while we try to build relationships of trust with the locals and attempt to gather info on insurgent activity in the Muktar's village. This is another picture taken by Randy of the Oregonian.
