Engineer Base Anvil

On 15 April 2003, the US Marine Corps' 7th Engineer Support Battalion moved to the outskirts of Baghdad where they set up camp in the compound of the Iraqi Republican Guard Headquarters and named the area Engineer Base Anvil. The camp in Baghdad was an Iraqi Republican Guard training base (like boot camp). Once there, the 7th Engineer Support Battalion linked up with 1st and 2nd Combat Engineer Battalions, as well as the 8th Engineer Support Battalion's EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) elements. These units set up camp in the middle of the old obstacle and ropes courses. From 16 to 20 April 2033, they collected unexploded ordnance from the base, as well as the nearby town.
