Marines with Camp Taqaddum's personnel retrieval and processing detachment load a flag draped transfer case, used to protect the remains of service members, into a waiting C-130 airplane during an evacuation process, July 19, 2006. An evacuation process is a small remembrance service and the first leg of the journey back to the United States. The mission of PRP is to inventory the personal effects, identify the types of wounds sustained, and prepare the remains for transportation to Dover Air Force Base. "It's a job we do with respect, and it is an honor to give respect to our fallen brothers and sisters," said Marine Cpl. Jose D. James, a serving with the 1st Marine Logistics Group's PRP detachment. The detachment is comprised of mostly reserve Marines from multiple different military occupations.(Official USMC photograph by Cpl. Stephen Holt. 060720-M-0293H-005.

Cpl. Kristine L. Jones, a 23-year-old native of Spring, Texas, sends a parcel down the ramp to an awaiting X-ray machine here July 26, 2006, where it will be scanned for any suspicious content. The post offices here and at seven other locations throughout Iraq and Afghanistan are utilizing X-ray machines to search for items including ammunition (live rounds and spent casings), grenades, shrapnel and magazines for weapons. The systems now in place serve as a precautionary safeguard throughout Iraq and Afghanistan, providing a more accurate way to ensure all mail is thoroughly scanned - and searched if necessary - for contraband before receiving a final X-ray at Bahrain. - Cpl.
