CSC SCANIA, Iraq — It's called Operation Iraqi Putting Green.

Major John McBrearty, executive officer of the 1st Battalion, 185th Armor Regiment of the California National Guard is trying to bring a piece of American life to the wilds of Iraq: a driving range.

"It's just a dream I had when we got here," he said.

Six months ago, he arrived at the dusty Convoy Support Center Scania, about 100 miles south of Baghdad, with a few clubs to keep up his skills.

"I figured I could at least work on my swing wherever I am," he said.
