Area Seabees teach Iraqis to build their own school

Link - At the last main intersection before Forward Operating Base Duke in An Najaf sits a small village of mud homes.

It is a common sight, but what makes it special is the new school in the middle of the village. Built by Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 7, Gulfport, and tribesmen from the village, the eight-room school dubbed "Desert Lights" will serve children who normally walk 7 to 8 kilometers to school each day.
