Robert Bailey pose together after being baptized in the Tigris River, Oct. 6 along the outskirts of southeastern Baghdad. The Paratroopers chose the location because the Tigris River is believed to be a spiritual location according to the Bible. The Paratroopers are assigned to the 1st Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division. (U.S. Army photo by Spc.
