that if something were to happen to him during his tour of duty, he wanted "The Fields of Athenry" to be played at his funeral. The single features a ballad version of "The Fields of Athenry" that was originally recorded and placed in Farrar's casket, although the band decided to release the updated version. The disc also features the track "Last Letter Home," which was written about Farrar and was featured on the Murphys' 2005 album ''The Warrior's Code''. All of the proceeds for the $10 single go to the Sgt. Andrew Farrar Memorial Fund and can be purchased through the band's website or at one of their shows. Iraq War During the 2003 Iraq War, the desert served as a major supply line for the Iraqi insurgents, with the Iraq portion of the desert becoming a primary stronghold of the Sunni insurgents operating in the Al Anbar Governorate, particularly after the Coalition capture of Fallujah during Operation Phantom Fury. A series of Coalition military operations were relatively ineffective at removing the insurgent presence in the Desert. However as the insurgents began to gain control of the surrounding areas the importance of the Syrian desert as a center of operations was believed to have lessened. By September 2006 insurgents had gained control of virtually all of the Anbar Governorate and had moved most of their forces, equipment and leaders further east to insurgent-controlled cities near the Euphrates river; nevertheless the Syrian Desert remains one of the primary routes for smuggling equipment due to its location near the Syrian border. ''Time'' Magazine (w:Time (magazine)) has reported from Anbar Province (w:Al Anbar Governorate) that the troop surge and Iraqi involvement with the help of local tribes, shieks, and their militias have driven out a large part of Al-Qaeda (w:Al-Qaeda) and foreign insurgents out of the area.

Just a few miles from the Euphrates, however, the barren landscape turns brown. With the exception of an occasional Bedouin, the desert is essentially empty. Whether traveling by aircraft, vehicle, or on foot, the Anbar Governorate is vast. During a time when mining (land mine) roads became a strategy of choice for insurgents, the need to patrol and travel throughout the province became one of the Marine Corps’ greatest challenges. The threat of insurgent activity, when combined with the challenges that long-distance travel, choking dust, and stifling heat created, made the Anbar Province a difficult area of operation.
