Here at Camp Pennsylvania, 30 miles from Iraq, commanders got the news from a reporter as they awoke at 6:30 a.m: The U.S. military struck Baghdad with Tomahawk cruise missiles and precision bombs from F-117 fighter-bombers in the opening salvo of military action to oust Saddam Hussein. But at Camp Pennsylvania, the humdrum rhythms of the camp made it seem like any other day. A line of soldiers out for a run resembled a centipede in the hazy distance.
