This Is How US Army Engineers Are Helping The Iraqi Army Fight ISIS
The U.S. has been training the Iraqi security forces on how to use float bridges to navigate the battlefield when there are no bridges available.
SHOW TRANSCRIPT

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.
