  • There were F/A-18C[N]s (VFA 25 or 113) and F/A-18Es (VFA 115) in the sky above Morghab (Google Maps), providing armed overwatch for friendly ground forces. When anti-coalition forces congregated on a troop transit route, a show of force was requested to disperse the crowd. Also, a strafing run was requested when the enemy forces massed at a position conducive to an ambush on friendly forces. Both actions were successful in dispersing the crowds.
  • Near Kirkuk (Google Maps), USAF F-16Cs and U.S. Navy F/A-18Fs (VFA 22) were providing armed cover for a friendly force's convoy passing through a potentially hostile village. Shows of force were requested to reassure the convoy that airpower was still in the area and to deter any enemy aggression. The shows of force were successfully demonstrated.

Anti-coalition forces were seen assembling at the enemy compound within the town. A show of force was requested to aid in deterring the enemy fire but was unsuccessful. The anti-coalition sniper position was identified and marked so that a precision-guided munition could be used against the target. The enemy compound was confirmed to have no friendly personnel in or around the target area and a precision-guided munition was deployed. Both munitions successfully destroyed the target and the enemy small-arms fire was terminated.
