No news here... but this is how some of the war in Iraq is waged.
U.S. Army Lt. Col. Drew Meyerowich speaks to Sheik Ibrahim, the Muqtar of Mahuz, about ways to use government channels to solve infrastructure problems prior to the opening of the Sen Al Thebban water project March 20, 2007, in the Hawijah district of the Kirkuk province of Iraq. The project will support 10 villages north of Hawijah and is capable of providing clean drinking water for approximately 20,000 people. Meyerowich is the commander of 2nd Battalion, 27th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Maria. J. Bare)
Of equal (or maybe more) note, the U.S. Army is using flickr to get pictures out to the public. Yes, the Army, as an institution, has joined a social network site. See their flickr stream.

Now, when are the other services going to get onboard?
