This commemorative relief hand painted beer stein honors our troops who served in Iraq. The front panel of this German stein shows the Victory Arch over the capitol Baghdad. The real arch in Baghdad is shaped as two pairs of crossed swords made from the guns of dead Iraqi soldiers that were melted and recast. The hands that hold the swords are replicas of Saddam Hussein's own hands. The American eagle with US flag is depicted below the arch on the front.
Landmarks from major cities of Mosul, Najaf, Kirkuk, Samarra, Kerbala and Basrah are depicted in vignettes around the sides. Other major cities are written in two bands encircling the stein including Sadr City, Ar Ramadi, Sulaymaniyah, Ba'Qubah, Nasriye, Amarah, Tikrit, Ad Dawr, Hilla, Fallujah and Irbil.
