Steve Liewer ©Stars and StripesSouthern Iraq, March, 2003: Spc. Stacy Miller of the Illesheim, Germany-based 2nd Squadron, 6th Cavalry Regiment, grabs a few winks as a convoy of 11th Aviation Regiment units stops along Highway 1, near An Nasiriyah. There were few opportunities for soldiers to sleep during the three-day trip from Camp Udairi, Kuwait, to 11th Aviation's new base in central Iraq, so they slept where and when they could.
