1st Lt. Sean Kane, with the 1/10th Mountain Division's 2nd Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment, hands a backpack to an Iraqi child in the village of Amushabi in the Kirkuk area of northern Iraq.
When friends and family of the deployed Soldiers learned of the units effort to provide local Iraqi schools with much needed supplies  they began a donation drive within their communities  eventually accumulating six large boxes of school supplies which they shipped to the 2-22 Inf. Soldiers.
The Soldiers were also able to acquire brand new desks, and almost 200 backpacks - which they filled with the school supplies from family and friends back home.
