Website for Joint Base Balad

Official website for Joint Base Balad - formerly referred to as Anaconda - from the US Air Force. The site includes photos, archived news articles, etc. Still no map though. Here's a background article on vehicle maintenance.

The maintainers, responsible for more than 1,200 vehicles of the base's Air Force vehicle fleet, keep mission-critical vehicles rolling for cargo movement and emergency response for the busiest aerial port in Iraq and the busiest single runway operation in the Department of Defense.
