On March 28th, 2006, 3rd Battalion 8th Marines took over the control for Area of Operations (AO) in Ramadi, Iraq from 3rd Battalion 7th Marines. Even before the Ramadi deployment, we were given 3/7’s After Action Reports (AAR) and we knew Ramadi was going to be hell on earth. We didn’t have to wait long for our perceptions to be proven right. First week of the deployment, known to some as Hell Week, was baptism by fire, even to 3/8’s Fallujah veterans. During the first week of fighting 3/8 lost 5 Marines and 1 Navy Corpsman. Hell Week set a pace of fighting that did not subside for the reminder of the deployment as 3/8 lost 17 Marines and Sailors in Ramadi, not to mention suffered hundreds of casualties. To all of us who deployed to Ramadi, we all can say it was one of the hardest things we ever experienced, yet at the same time, all of us would go back there in a heartbeat. This is in honor of all of the 3/8 Marines and Sailors lost in Ramadi, Iraq.

This was one of the Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles assigned to Alpha Company 1-9 Mechanized Infantry, U.S. Army, 2nd Infantry Division, Ramadi, Iraq (04-05). We were under the command of the 1st Marine Division our first 6 months in country and the 2nd Marine Division our last 6 months. Those marines were some badass fighters. Many 2nd ID soldiers returned to Ramadi from 06-07. In a span of four years, many 2nd ID soldiers were deployed for 3 years; 2 in Iraq and 1 in Korea. We were considered the longest deployed unit since the Korean War.

The Bradley is parked in front of our barracks at Camp Ramadi. This Bradley saw a lot of action; it fired a lot of rounds down range, and it was hit by numerous IEDs. This was the vehicle in chapter 1 that stared shooting 25 millimeter high explosive rounds. Sgt. Vallejo was the gunner in chapter 1, but he was my Bradley Commander on this mission. The main gun you see, the M242 Bushmaster is a 25 mm chain-driven autocannon with a maximum effective range of 6,800 meters, and a muzzle velocity of 3,600 feet per second.🇺🇸 The photos and videos we post on this page are based on a book that’s being released soon.

Issa was different. His humble demeanor and arid calmness drew me to him. He was kind but effectively deadly when he needed to be; which was often. Issa was a Sniper and member of the Iraqi Counter Terrorism Force made up of his country’s most elite operators who are trained by America’s finest. We transitioned through the highs and lows of daily and nightly combat, able to seek refuge at home during our time off in America. Issa and his ICTF brothers never had peace; they were completely immersed in war. They were on a constant rotation and even when they were off they were targeted and assassinated by terrorist. The ICTF originals are few, and those remaining stand on the front line fighting the enemy like warriors while our country has our toes in the sand and the government of Iraq isn't giving them any logistical support. They are proprietors of their own destiny. Issa was killed two days ago in Ramadi. After over a decade of fighting, he was cut down by ISIS; dying a warrior’s death in the fight with his brothers. My only regret is that we aren't there to help and we aren't there to fight along side of you. Blue Skies, Issa. You will never be forgotten and I’ll forever miss our times laid up in Baghdad slums hunting the worst of humanity. Please watch this documentary on Issa and the ICTFs efforts.
