On Jan. 1, 2009, U.S. troops formally hand over military control of Baghdad's heavily-fortified Green Zone to Iraqi troops, a first major step in the U.S. withdrawal from Iraq.

The Iraq War started on March 19, 2003 and Fort Bliss played a big role in it. President Obama visited Fort Bliss on Aug. 31, 2010 to mark the end of combat operations in Iraq.
