Balad, Iraq--U.S. Marine Corps 2nd Lt. James Michael Geiger III, 24, of Fayetteville, N.C., is prepped for an operation on his foot after he was injured by a land mine while he was giving out candy and radios to Iraqis south of the Haditha Dam in western Iraq. "We were out there trying to be nice," said Geiger before his surgery.
