30 Twenty-two-year-old Lance Cpl. Robert Hancock is crowded by Iraqi children in Saqlawiyah, Iraq. The soldier helped distribute school supplies and toys to the school children.

31 Donating toys is one little small factor, but it puts a big humanitarian face on what we do, said Chief Warrant Officer Gregory Melotte, team commander. Its great to see little kids out here. We bring them things they havent had in a long time or never had, like school supplies or toys. The children of the country are the future. Those are the people we need to help.
