ABSTRACT
The article describes the new role of the U.S. Army Infantryman in the Iraq war. In the Status of Forces Agreement, the U.S. forces (USF) is mandated to stay out of densely populated areas to reduce coalition signature and respect the IP's authority. While the Iraqi security forces (ISF) is responsible for protecting Iraqi cities, USF will attend to a smaller role serving as both military advisors and enablers for current ISF operations. Compared to ISF, the USF has more manpower, better maintained equipment and leadership that can plan operations.
