Afghan patrol
Soldiers patrol a small village during an air assault mission in Bamyan province, eastern Afghanistan, Nov. 4, 2008. The soldiers are assigned to Alpha Company, 101st Division Special Troops Battalion, 101st Airborne Division.

The border is becoming less and less of a transit zone, as Afghan national security forces, U.S. troops, the Pakistani military and the Pakistani frontier corps continue to conduct complementary operations against our joint enemy.
