For the first time since 2011, U.S. troops have been sent to the combat zone that claimed the most American lives in the Iraq War.
This week, a team of about 50 U.S. military advisers arrived at Al-Asad Air Base in Iraq's Anbar province.
Anbar was a bloody battleground during the eight years U.S. troops were stationed there. The 2004 Battle for Fallujah — the biggest battle of the Iraq War — left more than 100 Americans dead. (Video via National Geographic)
