McNabb, Landchild and Linnerooth were the tight-knit mental health crew in charge of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division in the Baghdad area. They were there when the surge began, rocket attacks increased and the death toll mounted. Fairchild says the three dubbed themselves "a dysfunctional tripod." Translation: One of the three 'legs' was always broken, or stressed out, and without fail, "the other two would step up and support that person." (AP Photo/Brock McNabb)
