Part 1 of a two-part series
Most of Sha'ab was still sleeping as a humvee weaved its way through the neighborhood's maze-like streets early one frigid, January morning.
Commanding the patrol was 1st Lt. Austin Dziengelewski's platoon of paratroopers from B Co, 2nd Battalion, 325th Airborne Infantry Regiment. The patrol was on their way to a squatter village in the area, where displaced families were living in makeshift tents.

The platoon's mission was to find them and see what help they needed."
