In this Wednesday, June 8, 2016 photo, 1st Sgt. Muayd Saad wears a watch given to him by his wife as he checks his phone on the southern edge of Fallujah, Iraq during an operation to oust Islamic State militants from the city. “Most people in Iraq, they just have faith in God and they don’t feel like they need things like this,” he said, explaining why some of his friends who aren’t in the military don’t understand why he considers the watch his wife gave him on their anniversary to be good luck. “In the whole fight against IS, I have never taken it off, not even to sleep,” he said.
