Task Force Justice, a troop force assembled by the U.S. Army to take control of the bulk of west Baghdad, is leaving Iraq over the next few weeks after an extended deployment of over 15 months. "I'd like to tell the guys coming in that it goes quick, but it didn't," says First Sgt. Antonio Gonzales, who got promoted during his tour but also separated and then got divorced from his wife. "It feels like we've been here our whole lives."
