AP photographer travels with the last US troops to leave Iraq, crossing the border into Kuwait
By The Associated Press

Under the cover of night, America's war in Iraq ended. It was called a "Tactical Road March" and consisted of five separate movements, all aimed at getting America's last soldiers out of Iraq safely. First a team left to clear the route of any roadside bombs. Then the troops left in four different groups. In all, the movement had about 110 vehicles and 500 troops.

The destination was Kuwait. When the roughly five-hour drive was over, it marked the end of America's nearly nine-year war in Iraq.

AP photographer Maya Alleruzzo journeyed with the 3rd Brigade across the border from Iraq into Kuwait, documenting the last vehicles and the last soldiers to leave the country ' and the relief they felt after making it successfully to Kuwait.
