Hadithah dam is a high-value target, a main source of hydroelectric energy for much of the country. The 2nd Marine Division's Small Craft Company (SCC) is here to see that those turbines keep humming. The unit has been deployed almost from the beginning of operations in Iraq, taking part in waterborne recon, combat patrols, search-and-rescue missions, and island raids. As of this writing they've suffered no casualties, lost no lives. Luckily, tonight's patrol goes off without a hitch. But there's always tomorrow; after all, this is war.
