Cpl. Jessica A. Cox, a 24-year-old from Waynesville, Mo., controls the flow of patients at a Cooperative Medical Engagement event in as-Saqlawiyah, Iraq, Feb. 29. The event provided free medical care for more than 200 civilians in the community. Iraqi culture discourages male-female interaction in public, so a female team provided care and posted security for women and children. The CME events are continuous throughout Al Anbar Province. The combined effort between Iraqi personnel and coalition forces is part of the Iraqi Women's Engagement program driven by the U.S. Department of State. Cox is deployed to Camp Taqaddum as a utility electrician with Marine Wing Support Squadron 272, 2nd Marine Air Wing.
