Qubah, Iraq, March 24, 2007: A U.S. soldier marks the hands of women and the backs of the necks of men with numbers for their specific neighborhoods and homes. Lt Col. Andrew Poppas of the 73rd Cavalry, 82nd Airborne Division, said the numbering system allowed troops to determine if people were moving around the village despite a lockdown following a U.S. attack on insurgents.
