Soldiers with the 2nd Brigade of the U.S. Army's 3rd Infantry — dubbed the "Spartan Brigade" — were the first U.S. troops to enter Baghdad. But instead of going home, they patrol the dangerous streets of Fallujah and will soon regroup in Kuwait to act as a reserve force. NPR's Eric Westervelt reports.
