Communication is important for Lance Cpl. Gafatasi Napoleon, 19, from Pahoa, Hawaii, as he guides a forklift to replace a brake control valve on a giant hydraulic system used to move 40-foot containers July 4, 2006 at Camp Taqaddum, Iraq. The mechanics of Combat Logistics Regiment 15's Maintenance Company aren't celebrating today's holiday with barbeques and fireworks like many of their families are at home. The popular consensus is that it's no different than any other day here as they repair the heavy equipment and vehicles used to transport a steady stream of supplies to fellow Marines throughout the Al Anbar Province. Instead of dwelling on what they may be missing out on back home these Marines, part of the 1st Marine Logistics Group, stay focused on their mission. Official USMC photo by: Sgt. Enrique S.
