Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff tours Hawijah, Iraq, March 2, 2008. Mullen visited a city market and visited with locals where as recently as three months ago the area was a main Al-Qaeda stronghold and American service members would face attacks on a nearly daily basis. Today, the town has enjoyed an 80 percent reduction in violent activities partly because of the rise of local citizens to aide in the defeat of Sunni insurgents. (image by Chad Mc Neeley)
