Their Own Fourth Of July

A roundup of the past three weeks' good news from Iraq.
[Spc. Christopher] Bean, 20, of Port Gibson [N.Y.], finished up a year-long stint in Baghdad as a truck driver with the 594th Transportation Co., a 101st Airborne division. His time in the military has given him a different perspective on the Fourth of July.

"In Iraq, we're not fighting for ourselves," said Bean, from his home base in Fort Campbell, Ky. "We're over there fighting so the Iraqis can have their own Fourth of July."
