Major Bieger, I had seen him help rescue some of our guys a week earlier during another big attack, took some of our soldiers and rushed this little girl to our hospital. He wanted her to have American surgeons and not to go to the Iraqi hospital. She didn’t make it. I snapped this picture when Major Bieger ran to take her away. He kept stopping to talk with her and hug her. The soldiers went back to that neighborhood the next day to ask what they could do. The people were very warm and welcomed us into their homes, and many kids were actually running up to say hello and to ask soldiers to shake hands. –Little Girl | Michael’s Dispatches.

This took place in Mosul, and the author called them the Deuce Four, which according to GlobalSecurity is the 1-24th INF.

Go read the whole thing. Although, it does makes one wonder who was really doing the killing of the 100,000 or so civilians during Iraqi Freedom.
