On March 26th, 2003, the 173rd Airborne Brigade conducted a Combat Parachute Assault into Northern Iraq. Operation "Northern Delay" secured Kirkuk, Mosul and the northern oil fields; preventing 13 Iraqi Army Divisions' from defending Baghdad or reinforcing defensive operations against U.S. and British forces advancing in the south, and thwarted Turkish efforts to subvert Kurdistan. This would be the dawn of the Northern front in Iraq.
