The building of Trash OP


Trash OP copy

At the start of its deployment to Camp Gannon, India Company 3/2 looked for positional advantages, finding ways to use observation and firepower to control key parts of Husaybah.  During April of 2005, the centerpiece of this approach was construction of a new, two-story battle position on the north edge of the city.  Officially called “BP Harman”, the Marines always just called it “Trash OP”. For the full story, read my draft chapter on it.

The chapter features excerpts from interviews with Will Marconi, Brian Hogancamp, Mike Hodd and Frank Diorio.  There are also other links on this site with stories about Trash OP:
