U.S. Troops In Baghdad Welcome 2008

U.S. soldiers serving in Baghdad ushered in the new year in a scene
reminiscent of New York's Times' Square.

Troops used a crane to lower a lighted ball during their countdown to
2008.

U.S. troops were able to celebrate more than in past years because of
decreased violence in the Iraqi capital.

Soldiers of the 82nd Airborne Division at Ft. Bragg held a dance contest and a chorus
performance as part of the revelry.
