One hundred and three Spanish soldiers from the military base in Almería have returned from a five month tour of duty in Iraq. Operation ´help Iraq´ aims to train units of the Iraqi army in modern soldering.
General Juan Jesús Martín Cabrero, head of the Legion brigade in Almería, personally welcomed each of his soldiers back on base by shaking their hands and receiving their salutes. This is the third and last Iraq tour of duty for the local military unit. “Today you finished your duty and you did it with success” a proud General Martín told his troops.
