Lt. Gen. Curtis M. Scaparrotti, Commanding General for ISAF Joint Command, works through an interpreter to talk with Afghan leaders during a visit Aug. 2, near Kandahar, Afghanistan. Scaparrotti spent the day meeting with ISAF and Afghan leaders. Later, Scaparrotti patrols through areas previously controlled by insurgents and sees first-hand how Afghan and ISAF troops are holding, and expanding on gains from last winter and spring.
