[bluedog] US military winds down Iraq withdrawal ........Roughly two million pieces of equipment have been removed from the country since September 2010, officials say. Some of it is destined for Afghanistan, where the US remains embroiled in a ten-year-old war; other items will be returned to the United States, or warehoused in Kuwait.
[bluedog] Not everything will be shipped away, though. The army will leave $220 million worth of equipment at Camp Adder, much of it containerized housing units (CHUs, in the military’s ubiquitous jargon), trailers which housed the base’s thousands of soldiers.
[bluedog] on one base there were over 500 bases
[ProsperityQueen] bluedog will they be left "for the Iraqi" or left because it costs more to remove it than it's worth?

[bluedog] Iraq says US hands over key air base (AFP) – 14 hours ago BAGHDAD — The US army on Wednesday transferred to Iraqi forces a key military base in the western province of Anbar near the border with Jordan and Saudi Arabia, a government official said.
"Today we took control of the Al-Assad air base in Anbar province, one of the most important bases in the country," Hussein al-Assadi, who signed the transfer on behalf of the Iraqi authorities, told AFP. "Counting Al-Assad, we have received 501 bases and there are only four left (under US control.)
These are located in Hilla, Diwaniyah, Basra, and Nasiriyah," he said in reference to four bases south of the capital. "Al-Assad base was returned to the Iraqi army's (ground) forces but they will be given back to the air force," he said, adding that American forces would leave the base in the "coming days."
The US army could not immediately confirm the transfer, but indicated in a statement that "approximately 8,000 US military and defense department civilian personnel" are still in Iraq.

[bluedog] General Calls Iraq Operations ‘Worth It’ in Final News Briefing By Lisa Daniel American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON, Dec. 7, 2011 –
As the final U.S. military convoys roll out of Iraq these next three weeks, marking the end of eight years of operations, Americans can be proud of the work service members did there, U.S. Forces Iraq’s deputy commanding general said today.
In USFI’s final news briefing from Baghdad, Army Lt. Gen. Frank G. Helmick told the Pentagon press corps that Americans and Iraqis will have different opinions about whether Operations Iraqi Freedom and New Dawn “were worth it.” “From where I sit, it was,” Helmick said.
It was because of the U.S. military role that the country held historic elections in March 2010, giving Iraq “the opportunity for a sovereign future,” the general said. And, he added, violence is at an eight-year low.
[bluedog] Helmick said his beliefs are underscored by the positive comments of some wounded warriors and family members of the fallen, which totals more than 4,500 U.S. service members.
“My firm belief is that there is no other military in the world that can do what yours did in Iraq,” he said. “For eight years, they have been building and securing this country.” U.S. troops’ greatest legacy in Iraq, Helmick said, is in the professionalism, confidence and esprit de corps of the Iraqi security forces.
“We gave 28 million Iraqis the greatest gift anyone can give and that is their freedom,” he said. Helmick marked the historic occasion by calling the veterans of Iraq operations the next “Greatest Generation,” a reference to those who served in World War II.
“The significance of this day doesn’t escape me,” the general said on the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. For their service in Iraq, he said, “America discovered the next greatest generation.”
“Words cannot begin to express the pride I feel about America’s military performance and service in Iraq,” he added. The 18-month process of drawing down forces in Iraq “is simply historic,” going from 300,000 service members and more than 5,000 installations in 2007 to 8,000 troops and five bases today, Helmick said. Military drivers have logged 16 million miles, “moving a mountain of equipment and personnel,” mostly through southern Iraq and into Kuwait, and have fewer than 1,000 truckloads left, he said.
