This Is How US Army Engineers Are Helping The Iraqi Army Fight ISIS

How U.S. Army engineers are building a bridge in less than a day: 

Step 1: Unload the bridge pieces. 

Step 2: Float them together.

Step 3: Secure them.

Step 4: Use the bridge to cross a river.

U.S. engineers trained Iraqi security forces on how to build a float bridge.

The Iraqi army then used the float bridge during the liberation of Ramadi from ISIS.

So airstrikes aren't the only way the U.S. is helping Iraq.
